EU's next Multiannual Financial Framework

Event date: 15/02/2018


There have been five multiannual financial frameworks (MFFs) to date.

The Treaty of Lisbon transformed the MFF from an interinstitutional agreement into a legally binding act. Established for a period of at least five years, an MFF must ensure that the Union’s expenditure develops in an orderly manner and within the limits of its own resources, and sets out provisions with which the annual budget of the Union must comply, thus laying down the cornerstone of financial discipline.
