NextGenerationEU is a temporary recovery instrument for Europe that will help repair the immediate economic and social damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic. The post-COVID-19 Europe will be greener, more digital, more resilient and better adapted to current and future challenges.

The central element of NextGenerationEU is the Recovery and Resilience Facility, which makes loan and grant funds available to support reforms and investments undertaken by EU countries. The aim is to mitigate the economic and social impact of the coronavirus pandemic and make European economies and societies more sustainable, resilient and better prepared for the challenges and opportunities of the green and digital transitions. Member States are working on their recovery and resilience plans to access the funds under the Recovery and Resilience Facility.

It includes funds to the Recovery Assistance for Cohesion and the Territories of Europe (REACT-EU). This is a new initiative that continues and extends the crisis response and repair measures implemented through the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative and the Coronavirus Response Investment Initiative Plus. It will contribute to a green, digital and resilient recovery of the economy. Funds will be made available:

NextGenerationEU will provide additional funding to other European programmes or funds, such as Horizon 2020, InvestEU, Rural Development or the Just Transition Fund (JTF).
