With one of the main new instruments being REACT-EU, a fund which represents an increase of 47,5 Billion Euro in Structural Funds, Member States of the European Union get a fresh influx of money to address both the consequences of the pandemic and at the same time to facilitate the transition towards a green and digital economy and societies that are more resilient. This package will be made available to the 2014-2020 European Regional Development Fund, European Social Fund and European Fund for Aid to the Most Deprived. These resources can be used both for existing national programmes, but also for existing cross-border programmes under the European territorial cooperation goal. Programming, implementing and controlling of projects under REACT-EU initiative in time will bring additional challenges to the representatives of public authorities, ESIF experts and beneficiaries. Besides REACT-EU Regulation, there is another Proposal for a Regulation establishing a Recovery and Resilience Facility. Gathering several voices from different Member States, Lexxion Publisher is delighted to host this special event and help answer the hottest questions.
