COVID-19 & Recovery

Since the outbreak of the COVID-19, the European Commission has been taking urgent measures and has modified its work programme to prepare long-term strategies to best cope with the effects of the crisis and prepare a “green” and “digital” economic recovery. In May 2020, the European Commission adopted their ‘recovery plan for Europe’, which will provide 1.8 trillion euros of support in combination with NextGeneration EU. This is the largest ever EU stimulus fund, and 30% of funds will go towards preventing climate change, which is the highest share in any EU budget.16
