To help finance the R&D program, the EIB is providing Heidelberg with a development loan that can be drawn down in tranches, each with a seven-year term. Heidelberg explains this is the first time a large German company has benefited from the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), which is the centrepiece of the Investment Plan for Europe.
