Monitoring EU countries' support for the COVID pandemic and the crisis

EU countries invested large amounts of public funds to prop up their economies during the Covid-19 pandemic. Measures worth an estimated €3 trillion were notified to the European Commission.

We monitored how much of these funds actually reached the economy and their impact on the single market. Our findings are published in a special State aid Policy Brief.

Since early 2022 EU countries have responded to the economic disturbance created by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The European Commission is assessing this new support to protect the single market.

We are monitoring the actual use of these funds. Our findindings will be available in the spring. Watch this space.
