In a context of structural, societal or economic disruptions, EU Member States must enhance further the resilience of their administrations and reinforce their capacity to anticipate and recover from crises. How can the European Commission’s Technical Support Instrument help Member States in this endeavour?
High-Level representatives from the European Commission, Member States and other Institutions gathered to share their perspectives during the 2022 Technical Support Instrument annual conference.
The conference highlighted the way the Technical Support Instrument can support Member States for the successful design and implementation of resilience-enhancing reforms, and in particular in the context of the recent crises (COVID 19 pandemic, Russian invasion of Ukraine).
The conference presented the main priorities for the Technical Support instrument for the upcoming year, notably:
- Providing continuous support to the implementation of Recovery and resilience Plans (RRPs);
- Focusing the support on selected top EU priorities (notably through the concept of flagship projects - support projects proactively proposed by the Commission to Member States);
- Encouraging the design and implementation of multi-country (and multi-regional) projects.
