What are Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs)?

Please note that the Joint Programming Initiatives will be merged under the European Partnerships in the new funding period. However, the exact guidelines for the European Partnerships have not yet been finalised. The information will be updated as soon as it is finalised.

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)
