We provide support to reforms in a wide range of policy areas, such as climate action, digital transition and health.
Strong institutions and high quality public administrations in Member States are crucial for delivering on EU objectives.
We have been implementing over 1200 reform support projects in all 27 Member States.
The Technical Support Instrument is the European Commission’s key tool for supporting Member States in designing and implementing growth-enhancing and inclusive reforms. From healthcare, to sound public finances, from the digitalisation of education and public services, to strengthening the business environment and the financial sector, the Technical Support Instrument supports EU Member States with their reform agenda.
Project in the spotlight
On a regular basis, the European Commission chooses a project to be its ‘project in the spotlight’. The featured projects, from different policy areas and in different countries, are selected on the basis of effective implementation, promising results on the ground as well as a potential to be replicated across the EU. In this way, the Commission seeks to encourage best practices.
The European Commission has supported the Supreme Court of Cyprus to modernise the civil procedure rules. The support led to the approval of the new Civil Procedure Rules by the Supreme Court of Cyprus on May 19th, 2021. The Commission continues cooperating with the Cypriot authorities in preparing the ground for implementation through training activities to all key stakeholders (judges, lawyers, court registrars). The implementation of the new rules will contribute to a fairer and more efficient justice system, which will contribute to strengthening the rule of law in Cyprus and speeding-up justice, ensuring favourable investment conditions and sustainability of growth
The European Commission organized its Technical Support Instrument Annual Conference, to share information about the Instrument and the role it plays in building a European Union that ultimately emerges fairer and more resilient.
