The Just Transition Fund supports the economic diversification and reconversion of the territories concerned. This means

  • investments in Small and Medium-sized Enterprises
  • creation of new firms
  • research and innovation
  • environmental rehabilitation
  • clean energy
  • up- and reskilling of workers
  • job-search assistance
  • transformation of existing carbon-intensive installations
