As part of the development of the next EU Framework Programme (Horizon Europe), the Austrian Presidency of the EU Council has organised a conference in Vienna on 19-20 September 2018 to discuss the role of Joint Programming Initiatives. Based on the experiences of the 10 JPIs and their recently presented long-term visions and strategies, the conference focuses on their role and contribution to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and implement mission-oriented programmes in Horizon Europe. During the conference, participants will:
  • Reflect on the experiences of JPIs in establishing mission-oriented/challenge driven R&I programmes with a view to future requirements of the ERA and Horizon Europe;
  • Debate the role of JPIs as hubs for coordinating the partnership landscape in the respective areas;
  • Discuss the potential contribution of JPIs to Horizon Europe and with regard to international policies, in particular SDGs.
The event is targeting GPC, ERAC, European Commission, national representatives and research organizations. The JPI HDHL will present its major achievements and new initiatives.

At the conference ten JPIs will make a public declaration on how to drive research and innovation to address global challenges.
