Whereas the RRF is part of the emergency NGEU package, and reforms and investments financed under the RRF have to be implemented in relatively short time, i.e. by 2026, its overall aim is to bring about structural change and lasting impact in the Member States. To this end, the facility is structured around six pillars representing policy areas of European relevance identified by the RRF Regulation as vital for strengthening the EU’s resilience (see Figure 32). The pillars define investment priorities and the scope of application of financing under the RRF. For two of these pillars, the RRF Regulation includes specific quantitative targets: each NRRP must earmark at least 37 % of its resources for the green transition and at least 20 % for digital transformation. Overall, the 22 plans approved by the Council by the end of 2021 devote around 40 % of their allocations to the green transition and around 26 % to digital transformation, thus exceeding the compulsory targets.
In addition, the Commission has encouraged national authorities to focus their plans on seven flagship areas relating to the above-mentioned pillars: 1) clean technologies and renewables; 2) energy efficiency of buildings; 3) sustainable transport and charging stations; 4) rapid broadband services; 5) digitalisation of public administration; 6) data cloud capacities and sustainable processors; and 7) education and training to support digital skills.
