The ambitious triple plan to transform the European Union in a fair, green, and digital fashion moves from the strategy-planning period to its first implementation phase in 2021. The Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU thus has a unique chance to initiate strategies which will define our next decade in the face of the current COVID-19 crisis. Besides bringing Europe back on the growth trajectory after the deep recession through the biggest 7-year budget in the EU´s history, there are two equally important ambitions: to start the continent´s path to the 2030 climate targets, and to navigate the bloc to the digital decade. How can this be done in a fair and sustainable manner?
