Providing long-term funding to companies and projects
The InvestEU Programme is uniquely suited to provide long-term funding to companies and to support EU policies in a recovery from a deep economic and social crisis. In the current crisis, the market allocation of resources is not fully efficient and the perceived risk impairs private investment flow significantly.
The InvestEU Programme, whose budget stems partly from Next Generation EU, is able to provide crucial support to companies in the recovery phase. At the same time, and in line with its original goals, it ensures a strong focus of investors on the EU’s medium- and long-term policy priorities such as the European Green Deal, the European Green Deal Investment Plan and the Strategy on shaping Europe’s digital future.
InvestEU also supports activities of strategic importance to the EU, in particular in view of enhanced resilience and of strengthening strategic value chains.

Recovery and Resilience Facility
The Recovery and Resilience Facility is the key instrument at the heart of Next Generation EU to help the EU emerge stronger and more resilient from the current crisis.
It will make €672.5 billion in loans and grants available to support reforms and investments undertaken by Member States. 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.
