Joint Programming – A EuCheMS view

Joint Programming – A EuCheMS view

The EuCheMS report on Joint Programming for EU R&D addresses the key issues for chemistry.
Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) aim to provide an impetus for European research cooperation in areas of societal importance. EuCheMS supports Joint Programming with some significant reservations. 
Whilst EuCheMS believes that Joint Programming introduces a systematic approach to EU R&D by shifting the focus from industry to society, it has reservations as to its overall efficiency and applicability. As a public-policy driven initiative, and in the light of the EU ‘Strategy for Recovery’, it could have a major impact not only on national research funding but also on the thematic targeting and design of future Framework Programmes.
EuCheMS supports the scheme as a step towards the creation of a successful and integrated European Research Area but believes that JPIs alone are not sufficient to improve the performance of the European R&D.
