On 31 March 2023, the Commission reported that it has meanwhile disbursed over €150 billion to EU Member States under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF), which started 2 years ago. The funds are designed to contribute to the EU’s economic recovery from the corona pandemic and to stimulate investment and reform. Under the RRF, Member States receive funding upon the successful completion of pre-agreed milestones and targets, which correspond to different stages in the roll-out of reforms and investments. Germany, for example, will receive €25.6 billion in grants from the RRF. They are intended, inter alia, to decarbonisation and digitalisation in the country.

As the implementation of the RRF progresses, the Commission also launched an online interactive map showing projects supported by the RRF and implemented on the ground by Member States. The aim of the interactive map is to enhance transparency on the functioning of the RRF and on its tangible impact for EU citizens, businesses, and civil society. The map allows to retrieve the following information:

  • Geographical location of reform projects and investments in Member States and their state of play;
  • Lead to more detailed information on the projects/investments provided online.

The map already includes over 100 reform projects that have been or are implemented in the Member States as well as over 250 investments.

The map complements other transparency tools on the RRF, such as the Commission website dedicated to the RRF, the Recovery and Resilience Scoreboard, providing regularly updated information on the disbursements and progress made by Member States, and the regular updates of the Member States’ own portals, which are required by the REPowerEU Regulation.
