The aim of the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) by the European Commission 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.
Finland has submitted its National Recovery and Resilience Plan to the EC and has requested €2.1 billion in grants under the RRF. The plan forms part of the Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland. The programme consists of four sections:
- A green transition will support structural adjustment of the economy and underpin a carbon- neutral welfare society
- Digitalisation and a digital economy will strengthen productivity and make services available to all
- Raising the employment rate and skill levels will accelerate sustainable growth
- Access to health and social services will be improved and their cost-effectiveness enhances.
The programme is available as an online publication:
