For the next long-term EU budget 2021-2027, the Commission proposes to modernise Cohesion Policy, the EU's main investment policy and one of its most concrete expressions of solidarity.

Five main objectives drive investments:

  • a more competitive and smarter Europe by promoting innovative and smart economic transformation and regional ICT connectivity;
  • a greener, low-carbon transitioning towards a net zero carbon economy and resilient Europe by promoting clean and fair energy transition, green and blue investment, the circular economy, climate change mitigation and adaptation, risk prevention and management, and sustainable urban mobility;
  • a more connected Europe by enhancing mobility;
  • a more social and inclusive Europe implementing the European Pillar of Social Rights;
  • a Europe closer to citizens by fostering the sustainable and integrated development of all types of territories and local initiatives.
