European Commission
The European Commission (EC) is the executive branch of the European Union, responsible for proposing legislation, enforcing EU laws and directing the union's administrative operations. Commissioners swear an oath at the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg City, pledging to respect the treaties and to be completely independent in carrying out their duties during their mandate.

The Commission has granted €923 million for the recovery and digital and green transition of Spain under REACT-EU to be implemented through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the European Social Fund (ESF) operational programmes.

  • The multiregional operational programme for the ERDF will be reinforced with additional resources of €890 million to support the acquisition of more than 34 million doses of anti-COVID-19 vaccine, the organisation of the vaccination process in Spain and investments in products and services for the health sector. The funds will also support investments contributing to the transition to a green economy.

  • In Aragón the ESF operational programme will receive an additional €25.5 million to support the unemployed, elderly people and persons with disabilities. Unemployed young people and those in long-term unemployment will receive tailored support through guidance and training to improve their skills or learn new ones. Authorities will focus on training in emerging sectors on those that have been particularly affected by the crisis. The funds will also reinforce the protection of vulnerable groups, for instance by supporting care and social protection of elderly people, securing additional interpreters of sign language so people with hearing impairments can access services more easily, and with adapted social transport projects.

  • In Murcia the ESF operational programme will receive an additional €7.3 million to finance the hiring of additional educational staff during the pandemic and to set up the necessary health and safety measures allowing face-to-face teaching of smaller groups in schools.
