Just Transition Fund

About the Fund

The fund is 1 pillar of the Just Transition Mechanism.

The Commission provides support to Member States having identified the territories expected to be the most negatively impacted by the transition towards climate-neutrality.

The Just Transition Fund supports the economic diversification and reconversion of the territories concerned. This means

  • up- and reskilling of workers
  • investments in Small and Medium-sized Enterprises
  • creation of new firms
  • research and innovation
  • environmental rehabilitation
  • clean energy
  • job-search assistance
  • transformation of existing carbon-intensive installations

The Fund is governed by the Just Transition Fund regulation and Common Provisions Regulation.
