European R&I Partnerships Initiatives

23rd October 2018, ENEA Brussels Liaison Office

Programming,  operational and strategic alignment of Joint Technology Initiatives towards Horizon Europe

In its proposal, the European Commission has ensured: “Horizon Europe will take a new and more impact-focused approach to partnerships. The current plethora of European Partnerships will be rationalized, so that they can continue in simplified forms that are open to all (such as academia, industry, Member States, and philanthropic foundations), while ensuring that they can effectively contribute to the general and specific objectives of Horizon Europe “.

As discussed during the event "INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIPS – A NEW IMPETUS", together with the well-known synergies, it is clear the need to take stock on the governance issue when talking about partnerships.

This workshop – organized by APRE, the Italian Agency for the Promotion of European Research, in collaboration with ENEA, the Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development – aims to take stock on the European Partnerships initiatives landscape with a focus on the Joint Technologies Initiatives to better understand their governance, their activities and how they are shaping their strategies towards Horizon Europe.
