On 17 December 2013 the European Commission launched eight contractual

Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) of strategic importance for European industry. (Press release)

The partnerships will leverage more than €6 billion of public investments with each euro of public funding expected to trigger additional investments to develop new technologies, products and services which will give European industry a leading position on world markets.

These PPPs are based on roadmaps for research and innovation activities which are the result of an open consultation process and which have been positively evaluated by the European Commission with the help of independent experts.

The PPPs will be implemented through open calls under Horizon 2020, the new EU Programme for Research and Innovation for 2014-2020. The first Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2014-15, published on 11 December 2013, foresees around €1.45 billion for these eight PPPs.

The three PPPs in the "Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing, and Biotechnology" part of Horizon 2020 are:
