Funding from EU Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF)

The Next Generation EU recovery instrument supports a speedy recovery for people, the EU economy and society from the Covid-19 crisis. The instrument includes a 750 billion euro recovery fund for EU member states. The recovery package is divided into seven parts, of which the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) is the largest. The RRF includes 672.5 billion in funding for EU member states.

Each member state must present a national Recovery and Resilience Plan (RRP) in order to receive RRF funding. The Council of the European Union formally approved Finland’s plan in autumn 2021. Finland’s RRP forms part of the Sustainable Growth Programme for Finland. The programme supports growth that is ecologically, socially and economically sustainable.

The Research Council of Finland supports the implementation of Finland’s Recovery and Resilience Plan with funding to promote the dual digital and green transition. In 2021, the Research Council's RRF-based funding amounted to 45 million euros. Another 45 million euros was awarded from the 2022 and 2023 RRF-based budget.

Business Finland works with the Research Council of Finland to implement the Recovery and Resilience Plan.
