What the Next Generation European funds are

The European Union had intended to establish a budget to develop Europe between 2021 and 2027. Because of the COVID-19 crisis, that budget has been increased by 750 billion euros. This increase is what is known as the Next Generation EU funds.

The goal is to relaunch the economy in the short term and improve productivity and growth potential in the medium and long term.

When the Next Generation EU funds will be available

In anticipation of receiving the European Funds, Spain's national budget has already allocated 26.634 billion euros for 2021.

The grants will be administered through the central, regional and local governments. The first calls for proposals could be announced before the summer.

How you can take advantage of this opportunity

The Next Generation EU funds are intended basically for self-employed workers, companies and corporations, which are the main drivers of the economy and job creation.

The main eligibility condition is that the investment be used for projects related to:

  • Sustainability: renewable energy, energy efficiency, sustainable mobility, etc.
  • Digitization: infrastructure, education, cybersecurity or artificial intelligence.
  • Cohesion and equality: education, health, infrastructure for the disabled and to promote culture and sport.
