The Technical Support Instrument (TSI) is the EU programme that provides tailor-made technical expertise to EU Member States to design and to implement reforms at the national level, with an emphasis on the green and digital transitions. The TSI also supports the preparation and implementation of Recovery and Resilience Plans. TSI 2022 main novelties are the multi-country projects, geared at addressing common issues among Member States thereby underlying the EU added-value of the instrument, and the "Flagship" projects, supporting reforms which are largely needed across Member States and are in line with the EU priorities.
Initiated in 2021, the TSI is the successor of the Structural Reform Support Programme (SRSP). Since 2017, both programmes have helped design, develop and implement over 1500 reform projects in 27 Member States.
