TRAINEESHIP TASKS

The EU Recovery and Resilience Facility (the Facility) makes €723.8 billion (in current prices) in loans
(€385.8 billion) and grants (€338 billion) 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.
The Facility entered into force on 19th of February 2021. It will finance reforms and investments in
Member States until 31st of December 2026.
To benefit from the support of the Facility, Member States have to submit their recovery and resilience
plans to the European Commission. Each plan sets out the reforms and investments to be implemented
by end of 2026.
Each plan should effectively address challenges identified in the European Semester, particularly the
country-specific recommendations of 2019 and 2020 adopted by the Council. It should also advance the
green and digital transitions and make Member States’ economies more resilient.
WWF Greece had an active role in this stream work of the EC and published also a dedicated report to
Greece:

In the following link you can find more information on the RRF, the draft or final plans and, where
available, the Commission assessment and accompanying press material:

The trainee will have to read the relevant material published by the EC and map (where the information
is available) all the green activities/investments proposed by the EU member States. It will be also useful
to group them per sector i.e. energy, transport etc. In that way we will be able to have a first overview in
which activities the money will be spent to.
