ERA-LEARN 2020 is a support action (CSA) funded by Horizon 2020. It started in January 2015 as a support platform for the Public-Public-Partnerships (P2P) community. P2Ps align national strategies, helping to overcome fragmentation of public research effort. P2Ps (ERA-NETs, Article 185, Joint Programming) involve varying degrees of joint effort, such as the co-ordination and integration of national programmes, the implementation of joint calls with EC contribution, and high-level commitment to address a particular societal challenge.
Day one of this year's Joint Programming event will build on the outcomes of the H2020 interim evaluation and the responses of Member States, European Parliament and stakeholders, while day two will focus on ERA-LEARN activities, starting with a plenary session that presents results of the pilot activities on impacts at project level and a policy paper on the P2P anniversary:"15 years of P2Ps - impacts at national and European level".
A detailed conference programme and registration will be available in September.
