Semi-inclusive deep inelastic scattering will be a crucial channel to extract transverse momentum dependent distributions at future colliders. In this context, we recently developed a framework that uses jets (instead of single hadrons) to achieve reduced sensitivity to final-state non-perturbative effects. Moreover, a suitable non-standard jet definition allows us to apply the factorization formulas valid for hadrons to jets of arbitrary size, by just replacing fragmentation functions with the jet functions we computed. Besides presenting the framework, I will show numerical predictions at N^2LL accuracy.
