These pages highlight key information on the EU budget and a number of projects it finances in all the 28 member states.
The EU Budget contributes to implementing the EU policies that are intended to improve the lives of Europeans as well as to have a positive influence in the world. Through a joint coordinated effort of both member states and the EU institutions, the EU Budget also finances projects covering a wide range of fields, from employment, regional development, research and education to environment, humanitarian aid and many others.
In order to be able to finance such welfare-increasing activities, all member states contribute to the common EU budget. The allocated money is then spent on areas of common interest thanks to the coordination and collaboration of the member states and the EU institutions.
