Question for written answer  E-005894/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Geert Bourgeois (ECR)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: ‘Digital bonus’ under the State aid rules

On 22 September 2020, Commissioner Vestager announced her intention to create more room under the State aid rules to enable Member States to grant more State aid to projects that bolster the green transition. She referred to this as a ‘green bonus’ to help the EU achieve the green ambitions of the Green Deal. Ms Vestager gave the example of public funding for construction projects which use recycled materials.

In its policy, the Commission consistently highlights two focal points: the green and digital transitions.

1. Does the Commission intend to create a similar 'digital bonus'?

2. If not, how does it explain the difference in approach with respect to the two focal points?

3. How does the Commission intend to ensure recurrent investment in the digital transition?
