This Issue of NEU is dedicated to the new budget 2021-2027 purposes made by the European Union and announced in the last days. A true economic subject that is so influencial for all the policies at all levels and for the lives of everyone of us. Even if it looks far and not so related to our everyday routine. Going into depth we will try to find out if this time the promises of being nearer to the needs of the European people have been realised, or at least imagined, or not. And we hope you will enjoy the reading.
