Through a joint action plan, the two institutions aim to:

– encourage multi-level governance and synergies between cohesion policy, the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) and other investment tools;

– Promote economic and social cohesion as an overall value in the EU;

– strengthening cross-border cooperation in Europe;

– and better communicate the added value of cohesion policy on the ground.
