The place to find all the resources for Jems


Jems stands for the Joint Electronic Monitoring System. Built on HIT 2021-2027, Jems provides a purpose built monitoring system on a free-license basis which means there is no charge for the software. It has been co-developed with the knowledge of Interreg programmes and a wide tester pool to create a harmonised, user-friendly software.

Jems is built knowing that more than one-third of Interreg programmes will use the system to meet their e-cohesion needs.

Although not a legal guarantee, one of the main advantages of using the harmonised system is increased confidence in compliance with the new regulations. You will also benefit from dedicated support through the Jems Helpdesk run by Interact, as well as peer-to-peer support from other programmes using Jems.

Jems was launched in March 2021 and any programme wanting to use the new system can sign a license agreement to use the software by contacting the Jems team.

In order to get access to Jems, your programme shall follow the procedure:

1. Programme’s should email jems@interact-eu.net and express an interest in testing the software before potentially using it in the 2021–2027 period.

2. You will receive a license agreement that will need to be signed by your programme’s hosting institution to receive the installation files and instructions.

3. The Programme should then ensure all the technical steps are completed. It is strongly recommended that you test Jems before starting to use the software with real data.

While Jems is easy to use, there are vital technical requirements that must be met:

1. Detailed specifications are available in the Technical manual (see support section). You should ensure a competent IT officer/provider reads these documents and that the programme can meet the requirements, including having a budget for hosting and maintaining the installation and any customisation.

2. Interact strongly recommends every programme maintains a separate test environment to check all updates before installing on the main system, ideally as part of an IT maintenance contract (if not managed in-house).

3. Programmes will have access to the source code, enabling programmes that want specific extras to create their own add-ons.
