The objective of this evaluation report is to assess the implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) atmid-term. The RRF is the EU’s main instrument to mitigate the economic and social impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. In particular, the EESC will examine, from the point of view of the organised civil society, the effectiveness and relevance of this instrument, as well as aim to determine the added value of civil society involvement in achieving the RRF Regulation’s objectives. The evaluation will also cover later developments, such as the REPowerEU initiative. The results of the EESC's evaluation will feed into the Commission's evaluation, the completion of which is scheduled for Q1 2024.
