12.11.2010 - Joint Programming in research 2010: A common approach towards innovation

The Belgian Presidency organised a conference on recent developments in Joint Programming.

The overall aim of Joint Programming is to pool national research efforts in order to make better use of Europe's valuable public R&D resources, and to tackle common European challenges more effectively in certain key areas.

It will follow a structured strategic process whereby Member States agree common visions and strategic research agendas to address major societal challenges.

The aim of this conference was to take stock of the setting up and implementation of Joint Programming in research so far, and to look at further developments of the Joint Programming process.
