InvestEU will provide and attract long-term funding in line with EU policies and contribute to the recovery from a deep economic and social crisis.

InvestEU will have a budgetary guarantee of €26.2 billion funded from NextGenerationEU resources and the Multiannual Financial Framework. The overall investment to be mobilised on this basis is estimated at more than €372 billion across the EU, of which 30% will contribute to climate objectives.

The adoption of the EU4Health programme marks an important step towards making €5.1 billion available to strengthen the resilience of health systems and promote innovation in the health sector.
