Brussels, 18 July 2022
Estonia will receive €3.5 billion Cohesion Policy funding to support economic, social and territorial cohesion in 2021-2027 in the framework of the Partnership Agreement between the Commission and Estonia, which was adopted today. This Agreement will also support the implementation of key EU priorities such as the green and digital transition and contribute to competitive, innovative and export-oriented growth.
The Partnership Agreement covers the Cohesion Policy funds, as well as the European Maritime, Fisheries and Aquaculture Fund. It paves the way for the implementation of these investments on the ground through 2 national programmes and 5 INTERREG programmes (concerning cross-border, transnational and interregional cooperation). Moreover, the Partnership Agreement reflects Estonia’s strong commitment to the coordinated use of Cohesion Policy funds with the Recovery and Resilience Facility. Under Cohesion Policy, and in cooperation with the Commission, each Member State prepares a Partnership Agreement, a strategic document for programming investments from the Cohesion Policy funds and the EMFAF during the Multiannual Financial Framework. It presents a list of national programmes for implementation on the ground. The 2021-2027 Partnership Agreement with Estonia is the 15th to be adopted. More details in the press release.
