Corresponding to the recently published new Strategic Research Agenda (SRA), JPI HDHL is delighted to announce the launch of the new Implementation Plan for the years 2019-2021. The Implementation Plan translates the objectives of the SRA into tangible targets for the next three years and defines concrete funding and non-funding activities that will be carried out by the JPI HDHL in the coming years.

The Implementation Plan 2019-2021 has been developed in a joint effort by the Management Board, SAB, SHAB and the CSA partners responsible for this task. The following aspects have been identified as being crucial for the success of JPI HDHL and will be addressed in detail in the different chapters:

  • Alignment at national, European, and international level including broader engagement and involvement of the member states to strengthen existing and build new partnerships;

  • Targeted joint actions to improve the impact of research investments with joint funding activities on key research topics, industry collaboration and by supporting research infrastructures;

  • Effective exploitation, dissemination and stakeholder involvement to achieve higher impact of our collective efforts;

  • Roadmap for sustainability leading the JPI HDHL to a self-sustainable future in close connection to Horizon Europe.

The implementation of these activities will require commitment and dedication of all involved partners within and outside of JPI HDHL. In order to realize this ambition, activities will be performed in close collaboration with policy makers, (health) professionals and other end users of food, nutrition & health research investments.
