Joint Programming is a new collaborative approach to research and innovation in which countries come together to define a common vision, a strategic research agenda and agree on joint actions, in order to address the ‘grand challenges’ society is facing. These urban challenges are considered beyond the scope and resources of any one country to tackle and would benefit from a coordinated approach to research and innovation.
In this sense JPI Urban Europe fosters not only an alignment of research programmes and strategies but provides an environment for bottom-up driven engagement of various urban actors.
Becoming a full member of JPI Urban Europe requires an application of a governmental body responsible for urban research and innovation (ministry, research funding agencies, research council). Candidate members can download the PDF on JPI Urban Europe Membership.Besides this formal participation there are various opportunities for interested parties to join in specific activities or actions. The main offers are given below.
More than 25 funding agencies are currently active in the Funding Agencies Working Group (FAWG), exchanging on urban research and innovation programmes, implementing joint calls and designing a transnational framework for urban research and innovation. Even without a formal membership funding agencies are highly welcome to join the working group.
