The European Council commits to nine institutionalised European partnerships

26/11/2021
[Translate to Englisch:] joint undertakings under the Horizon Europe programme

The European Council adopted a Council regulation today establishing joint undertakings under the Horizon Europe programme. The joint undertakings complement the existing Horizon Europe framework by addressing global challenges and priorities that require critical mass and long-term vision.

Horizon Europe introduces a more strategic, coherent and impact-driven approach to European partnerships. It establishes the policy and legal framework for European partnerships with private or public sector partners.

The regulation establishing joint undertakings aims to make the use of institutionalised European partnerships more effective, in particular by focusing on clear objectives and outcomes that can be achieved by 2030, and by ensuring that there is a clear contribution to related EU policy priorities.

European partnerships address complex challenges that can be best addressed by a partnership with industrial stakeholders. They are set up to ensure that there is clear impact for EU citizens through a strategic vision that is shared by the partners. The partnerships bring together a broad range of players to work towards a common vision and translate this vision into roadmaps and coordinated activities.

The nine institutionalised European partnerships covered by the proposal are:

  • Circular Bio-based Europe
  • Clean Aviation
  • Clean Hydrogen
  • Europe’s Rail
  • Global Health EDCTP3
  • Innovative Health Initiative
  • Key Digital Technologies
  • Single European Sky ATM Research
  • Smart Networks and Services
