JASPERS offers four types of support:

Strategies and plans

We advise authorities in their strategic planning, at national and local level, on a wide array of matters such as:

  • National transport strategies
  • Urban mobility plans
  • Flood and disaster risk management plans
  • Regional and urban climate adaptation

Our strategies and plans underpin the project pipeline.

Advisory support in project preparation

JASPERS covers all phases of the project cycle. We focus on the shift to climate-neutral, green and innovative projects in many areas, including:

  • Circular economy
  • Energy efficiency
  • Carbon neutrality
  • Smart cities
  • Applied research and innovation
  • Healthcare systems
  • Connectivity and sustainable mobility
  • Affordable water and sanitation services
  • Flood and disaster risk management
Project-appraisal support

If requested by beneficiary countries, JASPERS can perform appraisals to assist authorities in the decision-making process.

JASPERS continues to refine its approach to investment appraisal, harmonising project evaluation to ensure consistency across Member States and sectors. Involving our experts in the appraisal process is known to substantially reduce the average time required by the Commission to process project approval.

Capacity building

We consolidate the knowledge transferred during project assignments into workshops and training courses, which can be delivered in Brussels, in your country or online. We also publish working papers to disseminate best practices and address issues commonly encountered during project preparation. 


Regions and countries

European Union

As climate change adaptation and the transition to a carbon-neutral economy raise increasingly tough challenges, JASPERS’ support is needed more than ever in the European Union. Currently, JASPERS covers 20 EU countries.

JASPERS helps Member States through two different funds:

  • European Structural and Investment Funds: Now more than ever, Europe needs cohesion to respond to emergencies, promote economic recovery and growth, and build an equitable future for all. That is why JASPERS is helping to deploy the Just Transition Fund, and contributes to the URBIS and ADAPT initiatives.
  • Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) funds: CEF funds support sustainable transport projects across the European Union, with the principal objective of completing the core Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) and its corridors by 2030.
Pre-accession countries

Building on its long track record of experience in the European Union, JASPERS recently expanded its operations beyond EU borders.

Since 2013, JASPERS has worked with pre-accession countries through the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance. We help these countries develop infrastructure projects that meet the requirements for EU grant support, prepare sectoral strategies and strengthen relevant capacities.

Since 2016, JASPERS' support covers all Western Balkans countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, Montenegro, Serbia and the Republic of North Macedonia) as well as Türkiye. 

* This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSCR 1244 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo Declaration of Independence.
Eastern Partnership

JASPERS started supporting Moldova and Ukraine in 2023. Moreover, we have further expanded our area of operation through the facility for Eastern Partnership Investment in Connectivity (EPIC) to include the EU’s Eastern Partners Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine.
