Q: How will JTIs help increase investment in research in Europe?
A: JTIs will facilitate the creation of critical mass in the areas concerned by developing a coordinated approach to research across Europe. In doing so, they will strengthen the competitive position of European industry, thus making Europe a more attractive location for inward investment in research.

In addition, by allowing funding from the Framework Programme to be combined with other public funding sources, JTIs are expected to have a significant leverage effect on private investment and related economic activity.

JTIs will lead to the formation of wide partnerships that, in addition to the founding members, will involve a large number of players from industry (and notably SMEs), the research community and wider society. By facilitating networking between large companies and SMEs, JTIs are expected to leverage greater investment in the SME sector.
