European responses to the Covid-19 economic crisis came from not only national governments, but the European Central Bank and, notably, the European Commission too. The Next Generation EU fund provides substantial grants and loans to EU members states. Focusing on green and digitalisation issues, the fund looks to aid long term investment. Authors of an occasional paper released by the ECB outline their findings of the Next Generation EU’s economic impact on the euro area.
