Our research fellow Vít Havelka in his latest article published by the news portal Info.cz commented on the Czech approach to the recently agreed EU budget for years 2021-27 and the use of funds from a pandemic-response package.

However, effective use of the money could be an issue - we still don´t know how to use them.
