Q: What are Joint Technology Initiatives?
A: The EU's Seventh Research Framework Programme identifies Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) as a means to support trans-national cooperation in key areas where research and technological development can contribute to European competitiveness and quality of life.
JTIs are Joint Undertakings set up under Article 171 of the EC Treaty as a new way of realising public-private partnerships at European level in the field of industrial research.
JTIs arise primarily from the work of European Technology Platforms. In a small number of cases, European Technology Platforms have achieved such an ambitious scale and scope that they will require the mobilisation of high public and private investments as well as substantial research resources to implement important elements of their Strategic Research Agendas. JTIs are proposed as an effective means of meeting the needs of this small number of European Technology Platforms.
