JASPERS non-major support
JASPERS non major project experience
Borderline projects (i.e. projects close to major)
Non-major but strategic enough (i.e. almost major projects in small
JASPERS horizontal experience
Guidance on CBA Methodology, state aid, climate change,
implementation support for various sectors, guidance on bundled
projects/programs, capacity building, development of good practices,
strategic development i.e. smart specialisation strategies, sector
master plans etc.
JASPERS program support
Assistance to bundled projects under a framework
JASPERS Special Instruments
Pilot/innovative projects – urban development (ITI) /smart cities
Projects via Advisory Hub
Challenge: strategic context/framework vs individual projects
JASPERS Assistance
New challenges, opportunities, issues to consider
Assistance to non-major projects depends on country/sector
Objectives and output of JASPERS involvement to be defined

No definitive predetermined project thresholds etc. (i.e. non
major projects and programs)
JASPERS support needs to be reasonable and efficient
Support to "horizontal" projects e.g. where ICT is an
enabler for other services (example: smart cities)
Support to other multi-sector/integrated approaches
(example: ITI)
Example: Evaluation of public RDI projects
Latvia; foreseen in 2016-2017
Advisory support to public RDI projects: 5-10 projects;
a total cost of EUR 100m
Request from Ministry of Education and Science to
provide support with evaluation of the projects

Assistance to develop a smart specialisation
strategy (Romania, Malta)
Example I Romania
Smart specialisation strategy is an ex ante conditionality of the
OP development process
JASPERS provided assistance to identify national priorities for
the smart specialisation strategy
This exercise tied in with lessons learnt through JASPERS reviews
- built on the analysis of the RDI-based growth potential and
- modern foresight methods which were the main inputs for
the national strategy, particularly regarding the selection of
the thematic priorities.
The assignment included profiling of project interventions
The process is linked to the Partnership Agreement development;
monitoring and review to follow at a later stage
Example II Malta
JASPERS to provide similar support; independent review of the
existing draft smart speciliasation strategy document
