The proposed Flagship technical support projects have been selected on the basis that they are largely needed across Member States and are linked to top EU priorities the Member States are in the process of implementing. As such, they aim at supporting Member States in achieving resilience and growth enhancing reforms. The proposed Flagship technical support projects will be 13 and will include, for example, support for reforms for the digital and green transitions, a more efficient public administration and regional coordination, equality, combat child poverty and social exclusion, migrant integration and support to the tourism ecosystem

Digital

Development of resilient, innovative and human-centric digital government services

The coordination of these strategies will foster exchange of best practices and help identify sustainable ways to further enhance services. The support will help Member States lead an in-depth analysis of their current systems, capabilities and gaps. It will then support the development of mechanisms to improve central digital functions, making them more user-centric, resilient and innovative.

Bridging the Climate Financing Gap with Public Policy Instruments

The EU increased the spending target for climate action to 30% in its multi-annual budgetary framework for 2021-2027 and earmarked 37% in the Recovery and Resilience Facility. The level of climate resilient public and private investments will therefore need to be scaled up over the next years. The Technical Support Instrument (TSI) can help Member States assess the effectiveness of current spending, identify investment gaps, analyse options and identify the right policy instruments to bridge those gaps.

Regional and local authorities – Enhancing cooperation & Quality of public administration

The COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the importance of quality of public administration through State capacity in terms of policy coordination, cooperation, responsiveness, and resource mobilisation. Yet weak coordination across different levels of government and the imbalanced allocation of competencies are still challenges that limit the impact of State policies. As such, the support provided with this flagship is highly relevant in the current context of recovery where coordinated planning and strategic foresight will be key for the implementation of the Recovery and Resilience Plans.
