Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our societies, the European Semester is structured differently this year than in the previous ones. Now it is linked to the Recovery and Resilience Facility, and the Recovery and Resilience Plans prepared by the EU Member States.

What do we know about the Facility and the Plans? What investments and reforms are supported by the Facility and what principles should the Plans respect? In what stage are the Plans now, and what can we expect to happen in the coming months? How much is stakeholder involvement safeguarded by the Facility and what can we, at Eurodiaconia do to participate in the process?

For answers, please, read our Briefing for Members.
