What is ANIMA Investment Network?

ANIMA Investment Network is a multi-country platform supporting the economic development of the Mediterranean. The ANIMA network (www.anima.coop) gathers around 64 governmental agencies and international networks. The objective of ANIMA is to contribute to a better investment and business climate and to the growth of capital flows into the Mediterranean region.

Missions of the network

ANIMA Investment Network is committed to favour a shared and sustainable economic development in the Mediterranean, particularly in relation with Europe and the neighbouring countries (Black Sea, Gulf States, etc.).
ANIMA participates, in association with a network of public and private, national and international stakeholders, to the development of investments and business partnerships, of innovation and entrepreneurship, and to the internationalisation of enterprises, in order to contribute to the creation of added-value and jobs, to an increased awareness of the environmental and social stakes, to the balanced partnership between North and South and to the economic integration of the countries in the region.

Targeted sectors and themes

  • Promotion of the territories: ANIMA produces several studies each year in addition to its Mediterranean Investment and Partnership Observatory (MIPO). Several seminars are organised for the different stakeholders of the economic development to be able to share their experiences and strengthen their skills;
  • New sectorial / industrial environment: ANIMA leads the Invest in Med programme. This EU cofunded programme aims to develop sustainable trade relationships, investments and enterprise partnerships between the two rims of the Mediterranean through the creation of Euro-Mediterranean clusters for the key competitive sectors of the region but also through business forums, staff exchanges, etc;
  • Promote innovation and entrepreneurship: ANIMA carries on the MedVentures initiative, which aims to help Mediterranean start-ups in their internationalisation process. To do so, business plan competitions, business meetings with investors and strategic partners are organised for the start-ups. Networking between the intermediary organisations supporting innovative companies is also facilitated.
  • Promote the Responsible Investment : ANIMA Investment Network is now a participant in the Global Compact, a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles. [Read+]
