The overall aim of the Joint Programming process is to pool national research efforts in order to make better use of Europe's precious public R&D resources and to tackle common European challenges more effectively in a few key areas.
It is a structured and strategic process whereby Member States agree, on a voluntary basis and in a partnership approach, on common visions and Strategic Research Agendas (SRA) to address major societal challenges. On a variable geometry basis, Member States commit to Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) where they implement together joint Strategic Research Agendas.
The following Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) have been launched to date:
JPI A Healthy Diet for a Healthy Life (JPI HDHL)
JPI Agriculture, Food Security and Climate Change (FACCE JPI)
JPI Connecting Climate Knowledge for Europe (JPI Climate)
JPI Cultural Heritage and Global Change: A New Challenge for Europe (JPI CH)
JPI Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans (JPI Oceans)
JPI More Years, Better Lives – The Potential and Challenges of Demographic Change (JPI MYBL)
JPI Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND)
JPI on Antimicrobial Resistance (JPI AMR)
JPI Urban Europe – Global Urban Challenges, Joint European Solutions
JPI Water Challenges for a Changing World (Water JPI)
