The EU's Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) is an essential part of the EU's economic recovery plan, providing grants and loans to member states. Since its launch in 2021, implementation has been uneven across EU countries.

About the seminar

The EU's Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) is an essential part of the EU's economic recovery plan, providing grants and loans to member states. Since its launch in 2021, implementation has been uneven across EU countries. Spain and Croatia has received three payments, Greece has applied for its third, while Italy has received its fourth payment. Some countries have only received the first payment or none. What are the reasons for these differences in implementation between EU countries, and how can one navigate the new system for successful RRF funding?

Join us for an insightful exploration of the RRF, discovering effective strategies for its implementation to ensure a resilient recovery for all EU member states. Engage in discussions with EU experts and network with your colleagues across Europe. Don't miss this opportunity!
