The EIB Investment Report is the bank's flagship research report, aiming to deepen our understanding of investment and investment financing in the EU. It presents and analyses the 2017 release of the EIB Investment Survey (EIBIS) of businesses in the EU, which also includes a Europe-wide survey of municipal authorities.
Following a theme of "From recovery to sustainable growth", it describes how the investment recovery in Europe continues to strengthen and become more broad-based, across countries, sectors and asset classes.

- Business investment is being driven by the improving outlook and efforts to keep pace with competitors, but there is still need to improve business environment.
- This investment recovery is generally supported by good financing conditions for firms, but deleveraging remains a drag.
- EU firms continue to be net savers overall, suggesting that many firms are unwilling to invest despite a liquid financial position. Nonetheless, with the improving economy there also emerge structural investment needs in innovation, skills, infrastructure and sustainability.
- The EU continues to fall behind global peers in terms of R&D spending, while other types of intangibles – software, training, organisational capital, etc. – prove to be just as important.
- Business environment has to improve further. Persistent financial fragmentation across the EU could slow convergence and reduce capacity to absorb shocks.This report indicates that there is a window of opportunity to address structural investment needs through both public and private investment, with targeted policy intervention to ease specific constraints.

    How high will you climb? John Maxwell says it all depends on your attitude.  Nose up or nose down? Just as the angle of an airplane determines its altitude, so does the approach we take—to family, to work, to life in general—determine the attitude we present the world. The way we solve a problem is often secondary to the approach we take in facing the problem, our outward expression every bit as critical as the inward struggle. When the skies above appear stormy, how will you steer that internal plane we call attitude? With How High Will You Climb?, author John Maxwell presents detailed lessons on the single invaluable quality that has become a person’s primary force toward success. As the world around us delivers challenges—all the while marching on at its own inevitable pace—the attitude we choose affects each of us individually. And yes, an attitude can be chosen. Attitude is easy in times of joy and progress. But how do you handle the failures sure to interrupt the attainment of goals? What happens to us is often quite different from what happens in us. Calling the Bible a “handbook on attitude performance,” Maxwell emphasizes we are never actually flying solo. God supports our approach to problem solving and helps steer the attitude adjustments necessary to think correctly in a sometimes negative world. With a study guide to help evaluate and build upon your own flight angle, How High Will You Climb? establishes the fundamental elements for a steady, durable flight of life.
