The aim of this project is to assess the design and content of the National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs) submitted by EU member states in the context of the Next Generation EU’s Recovery and Resilience Facility. More specifically, the project will assess the extent to which the NRRPs effectively contribute to the green and digital transition while assuring social, economic, and territorial cohesion. Going beyond the analysis of the texts, the project will explore the national political contexts in which the NRRPs are discussed and created.

The project will compare the different NRRPs and present an overarching assessment at the EU level to highlight differences, analyze the overall coherence of the plans, and identify potential conflicts. In Spring 2021, a discussion paper presenting the assessment is expected be published.

ELIAMEP’s Greek and European Economy Observatory participates in the project through its Head, D. Katsikas, who will conduct the analysis the Greek NRRP.

The project is coordinated by the European Policy Centre (EPC) and supported by the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung Europe.
