Q: How are JTIs identified?
A: JTIs will be set up in fields of high industrial and policy significance. The potential areas are identified on the basis of a set of criteria which are laid out in the Seventh Framework Programme. These criteria are:
  • Inability of existing instruments to achieve the objective,
  • Scale of the impact on industrial competitiveness and growth,
  • Added value of European-level intervention,
  • Degree and clarity of definition of the objective and deliverables to be pursued,
  • Strength of the financial and resource commitment from industry,
  • Importance of the contribution to broader policy objectives including benefit to society,
  • Capacity to attract additional national support and leverage current and future industry funding.
