The conciliation agreement for the 2018 budget included the mobilisation of two such instruments: the Global Margin for Commitments and the Flexibility Instrument (Table 1).

Examples of supported programmes and instruments are Horizon 2020, the Connecting Europe Facility, Erasmus+, the European satellite navigation systems (EGNOS and Galileo), the European Earth Observation Programme (Copernicus) and the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI).
