ANIMA Investment Network

who we are

ANIMA Investment Network is a multi-country platform supporting economic development in the Mediterranean. The ANIMA network gathers around 80 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

The ANIMA Investment Network is committed to promoting shared and sustainable economic development in the Mediterranean, particularly in relation with Europe and neighbouring countries (Black Sea, Gulf States, etc.).

ANIMA participates, in association with a network of public and private, national and international stakeholders, in the development of investments and business partnerships, of innovation and entrepreneurship, and the internationalisation of companies, in order to contribute to the creation of added-value and jobs, increased awareness of the environmental and social challenges, balanced partnerships between North and South and the economic integration of the countries in the region.

Targeted sectors and areas of interest

  • Promotion of the regions: ANIMA produces several studies each year in addition to its Mediterranean Investment and Partnership Observatory (MIPO). Several seminars are organised to enable the different stakeholders to share their experiences and strengthen their skills;
  • New sectoral / industrial environment: ANIMA leads the Invest in Med programme. This EU co-funded programme aims to develop sustainable trade relationships, investment and business 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 and so on;
  • Promote innovation and entrepreneurship: ANIMA leads the MedVentures initiative, which aims to help Mediterranean startups in their internationalisation process. To do so, business plan competitions, business meetings with investors and strategic partners are organised for the startups.
