A mission-oriented program for Europe: JPIs ready to take up the challenge

On 3 July 2017, the High Level Group on maximising impact of EU Research and Innovation Programmes, chaired by Pascal Lamy, published their report with recommendations. One of its main recommendations was “to adopt a mission-oriented, impact-focused approach to address global challenges” and to “mobilise researchers, innovators and other stakeholders to address them”.

At the 3rd GPC* workshop on the future of Joint Programming, entitled How to improve coherence of the partnership landscape and strengthen the delivery of partnerships on mission oriented programmes?” and jointly organised with the 10 Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs), the value of partnerships in mission oriented programmes will be discussed. This workshop will take place in Brussels on 7 November 2017, back-to-back with the Annual Joint Programming Conference.

The workshop aims to reflect on existing partnerships and their missions, against requirements for future mission-oriented programmes and a more coherent landscape of such partnerships. Parallel sessions will allow thematic in-depth discussions on how to improve the coherence between partnerships and potentially rationalise the current landscape. Participants will discuss how to improve delivery of partnerships in tackling specific societal challenges and related missions. Six research fields have been selected: “ageing”, “infectious diseases”, “food and nutrition security”, “sustainable cities”, “biodiversity” and “climate change”.

The key messages of the parallel sessions will feed into a high-level debate on the role of partnerships in future mission-oriented R&I programmes and the improvement of the coherence of the partnerships.

Participation is on invite only.
