Funded under: FP7


Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) are a major new element of the Seventh Framework Programme. They provide a new way of realising public-private partnerships in research at European level. They focus on key areas where research and technological development can contribute to Europe's wider competitiveness.
In this context, this document has four main purposes. Firstly, it sets out the origins and definition of JTIs. Secondly, it highlights a number of potential positive leveraging and mobilising effects of JTIs on research investment. Thirdly, it assesses possible implications with regard to competition policy. Fourthly, recognising the novelty of the instrument, it sets out a number of common features for JTIs.
