Event type: 

This event organised by JPI Urban Europe and the FFG, with support of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology (BMVIT) and  the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF), will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Joint Programming Process (JPP) and will exchange on the JPIs‘ achievements and potentials.

The conference will aims at gathering the main stakeholders of the JPIs, to share their experiences in developing and implementing challenge-driven R&I programmes and exchange on possible contributions towards Sustainable Development Goals. Especially with regard to FP9 and the introduction of missions, the JPI model can serve as a reference.
JPIs role and contribution to developing and implementing mission-oriented programmes in FP9 will be discussed.

The programme will include 3 sessions:

  • Session 1: 10 years JPIs – 10 journeys of how to build ‘challenge-driven’ r&I programmes

          Achievements and good practice examples will be presented and discussed with representatives of the main stakeholder groups – from research, policy and society.

  • Session 2: JPIs (re-)structuring the landscape

          As intergovernmental partnerships JPIs can act as European hubs for coordinating and aligning research and innovation. Manifold relationships and cooperation have been established and the potential for further strengthening of the European R&I landscape will be discussed.

  • Session 3: the role of JPIs in European and international policy making

          On European and international scales high emphasis is given on strengthening science-policy relations and enhancing the impact of European R&I for policy and society. The potential contributions of JPIs to the future European missions will be reflected.
