The European Commission put on the table a mid term review and a proposal for a mid term revision of the MFF 2021-27 on 20 June 2023.
To be able to provide a swift answer, the Committee of the Regions appointed a Rapporteur General and adopted its final poistion in Octoboer 2023 plenary. The opinion covers both the revision of the MFF per se (i.e: targetd and limited increases in some spending areas) and the proposal to set up a Strategic Technologies for Europe Platform (STEP) which consitutes the EU's response to initiatives taken by other countries such as the USA ( Inflation Reduction Act) to boost invesements in green, digital, bio "deep technologies" .
The proposal (included in the MFF mid term revision) for extra funding for Ukraine (Ukraine Facility) is dealt with in the Nardalla Opinion (CIVEX VII -025).
In order to feed the work on the STEP proposal, CoR organised a Territorial Impact Assesment (TIA) on Monday 2 October 2023. The report on the TIA - STEP will be published in November 2023.
