This hybrid roundtable was dedicated to discussing some of the findings of the Recovery Watch focus area on EU Governance with a specific look at the policy implications for reforming the EU economic governance framework.

The research is part of the Recovery Watch project. FEPS, Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and Institut Emile Vandervelde (IEV), in partnership with first-rate knowledge organisations, have built a structured network of experts to monitor the implementation of National Recovery and Resilience Plans and assess their impact on key social outcomes. Fact- and data-based evidence will sharpen the implementation of national plans and instruct progressive policymaking from the local to the European level.
