Whether in the context of regional policy, or through programs managed by the Commission, European funding plays an important role in financing the local economy and territories.
However, at the European level, as shown by the ongoing exchanges on the future multiannual financial framework, the fiscal equation is increasingly complex to solve - with, on the one hand, resources in attrition (consequence of Brexit) and on the other, increasing needs (climate, migration, strategic issues, etc.).
This is the reason why European funding for the territories will experience a "new deal" in the coming years : in terms of priorities, modes of intervention and actors. This new deal should strengthen the Europe of the territories, making it possible to distribute European funding closer to local needs.
After having sketched an overview of European funding for the territories,, we highlight the main elements of the "new deal" linked to the future multiannual financial framework before highlighting the growing role of public investors in national long-term services for a Europe of territories.
