Coordinating energy research for a low carbon Europe

How does a Joint Programme operate

An EERA Joint Programme is created by interested organisations that define a joint research agenda for a topic included in the SET-Plan. The EERA JPs coordinate research based on the participating institutions own resources. In addition, the JP can obtain supplementary funding from national or EU sources. The aim is to gradually increase the amount of funding dedicated to the JPs. This will allow a JP to widen and deepen coordination.

A Joint Programme consists of:

  • The Joint programme steering committee
  • The Joint programme management board
  • The Sub-programmes divided into research areas

A participating institution can be either a full or an associate participant of a JP.
