Abstract

Joint Technology Initiatives are a smart new way of working together towards reaching the goals set by EU leaders in the Lisbon strategy on growth and employment.
For the first time, public-private partnerships in the field of industrial research are being created at European level. By combining public and private funding, these partnerships have an important integrating effect on research. Industry will pool substantial financial and human resources with the public sector and other stakeholders to push forward towards common research goals.
In doing so, Joint Technology Initiatives can play a critical role in ensuring that European industry remains at the forefront in areas of strategic importance for competitiveness and for the wellbeing of all citizens. By fostering stronger links between the research community and industry, they will stimulate innovation, thus enabling Europe to lead the way.
