Technical Support Instrument

About the programme

The Technical Support Instrument helps EU Member States design and implement resilience-enhancing reforms by providing expertise to national authorities. The support is on demand and can include strategic and legal advice, studies, training and expert visits on the ground.

Member States can request support to:

  • implement resilience-enhancing reforms in the context of EU economic governance, such as those arising from country-specific recommendations under the European Semester and by virtue of implementing EU law
  • prepare, amend, implement and revise national recovery and resilience plans under the Recovery and Resilience Facility
  • implement economic adjustment programmes
  • implement reforms undertaken at their own initiative

The support is delivered by a wide range of providers, including international organisations, public bodies, the private sector or the Commission’s own staff.
