The BLUEMED initiative, Blue Growth research and Innovation Initiative for the Mediterranean - BLUEMED Initiative, is the result of the efforts of 9 EU member states bordering the Mediterranean sea, to foster a sustainable blue growth in the Mediterranean sea area. Its final goal is to contribute to align or integrate the funding strategies, R&I funds and infrastructures at regional, national and EU level, by avoiding duplication, improving the effectiveness in the use of resources and maximizing the leverage effects. BLUEMED represents a good practice of alignment at strategic level, involving from one side the EU Mediterranean Countries, who committed at political level to adopt common research priorities and strategic agenda, and from the other side, the European Commission DG RTD and MARE, which facilitated and supported the process.

The ERA-NET Plus (European Research Area Network) Infravation is a transnational joint call for research proposals in the field of road infrastructure that relies on a “real common pot” funding mechanism. It brings together 11 National Road Authorities, including from Israel (FP7 Associated country) and the USA, and benefits from co-funding from the European Commission. This ERA-NET’s funding mechanism promotes greater financial alignment by allowing to pool financial resources from participating countries and optimally use the latter to fund selected transnational research projects, irrespective of applicants’ nationalities. It has also enabled participating countries to identify common research priorities and to promote alignment at the operational level through the delegation of funding, coordination and management responsibilities to a single entity.

Building on the Typology of Alignment (Task 4.1), this Task examines in greater depth selected actions and instruments that promote greater alignment amongst EU Member-States’ national research programmes and activities. A set of case studies are selected among existing P2P networks, research alliances and JPIs. These consist in a mix of actions and instruments undertaken at different stages in the research programming cycle and relying on different cooperation modes and actors, hence representing different facets of alignment. The analysis relies on a review of existing literature and targeted interviews with managers and beneficiaries/participants of these alignment modalities. In synthesizing the results of the selected case studies, a comparative analysis will be conducted in view of developing a roadmap/ toolbox for further aligning different P2Ps.

This publication contains nine case studies that examine different approaches and modalities used by EU Member-States (and Horizon2020 Associated Countries) to facilitate the alignment of national research strategies, programmes and other activities in the context of joint programming processes. These case studies have been conducted in the framework of Task 4.2 of the ERA-LEARN2020 Project (2015-18), and build on the “Typology of Alignment” developed under the project’s Task 4.1. The case studies do not constitute in-depth evaluations of ongoing practices. Instead they aim to illustrate how selected approaches have been used to promote alignment at strategic, operational and financial levels, and what the key “lessons learned” are from these experiences. The case studies outline the main benefits and challenges practitioners have faced when putting in place such approaches, and the key factors for their successful implementation. The main target audience for this publication are national research funding and research performing organisations.

The Joint Programme Neurodegenerative Disease Research (JPND) is the largest global research initiative that enables participating countries to collaborate on tackling the challenge of age-related neurodegenerative diseases. JPND was among the first JPIs to establish a monitoring and evaluation framework. In 2016-2017, this framework was revised. This good practice case study focuses on the recalibration of the existing monitoring and evaluation framework and its underlying rationales. The case study highlights main sources and processes needed for performing the framework and highlights key benefits as well as challenges in this regard.

ERA-LEARN 2020 Policy Briefs serve the purpose of providing succinct information on topics that are of vital importance for advancing Public-Public-Partnerships (P2Ps). This policy brief on stakeholder engagement summarizes the current state-of-play of stakeholder engagement among JPIs, highlights existing approaches of engagement, and introduces possible ways to advance stakeholder engagement.

Involvement of a wide range of actors, such as national policy makers, research funding organizations, relevant research communities from academia and industry as well as user communities in Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) and other Public-Public-Partnerships (P2Ps) is seen as a key pre-requisite for achieving long-term impact on tackling societal challenges through research and innovation (R&I) actions.

The most recent evaluation of the Joint Programming Process highlighted the view of JPIs that there is a strong need to involve end-users and industry “when facing a societal challenge”. The evaluation concludes that challenge-based R&I needs the active involvement of societal stakeholders and industry to achieve maximum impact.
However, most JPIs “still wonder what would be the best way”. Against this background, this policy brief on stakeholder engagement summarizes the current state-of-play of stakeholder engagement among JPIs, highlights existing approaches of engagement, and introduces possible ways to advance stakeholder engagement.

GPC - Opinion on the Future of Joint Programming

On 6 June 2017 the High Level Group of Joint Programming (GPC) adopted its Opinion on the "Future of Joint Programming to address societal challenges".

On 6 June 2017 the High Level Group of Joint Programming (GPC) adopted its Opinion on the "Future of Joint Programming to address societal challenges". The Opinion aims at identifying the major challenges and proposing measures for future development, both in view of the mid-term review of Horizon 2020 (H2020) and the preparation of the 9th Framework Programme (FP9) for Research and Innovation. 

For the future, the European Joint Programming Process should be considered with a wider perspective by including, where relevant, other Public-to-Public Partnerships (P2Ps) such as ERA-NETs, EJPs and Art.185 Initiatives. The overall principle of all these forms of collaboration should be a true and deepened partnership between Member States and Associated Countries (MS/AC) and the European Commission (EC) to jointly face the next decade's SCs with a global perspective. The GPC therefore proposes

  • to develop an overarching approach for the JPP in the broader context of strategic, mission-driven research and innovation in Europe.
  • to further enhance and broaden the commitment and participation in P2Ps in order to ensure their sustainability and to promote national and European coordination, involving both funding and performing organisations.
  • to consider a "JP roadmap-model" with regular evaluations in order to get predictability and sustainability for all relevant P2Ps.
  • to pay close attention to, and monitor the impact of, P2Ps on alignment and added value for science and society at a national, European and global scale.

The Opinion was prepared following an open consultation and collaboration between the GPC, the ten JPIs, the EC, as well as a broad spectrum of national and international stakeholders.

FACCE-JPI Applies a Stepwise Approach to Assess Impact at Network Level

This case study showcases how FACCE-JPI assesses impact through its Monitoring & Evaluation activities.

This case study showcases how FACCE-JPI assesses impact through its Monitoring & Evaluation activities. Six years after its launch, the ambition is to show evidence for impact created in the course of time. This ambition requires adequate approaches and processes of evaluation. FACCE-JPI developed a stepwise approach. This case study also shows how Monitoring & Evaluation activities also serve as a reflection and learning tool. FACCE-JPI’s approach and process is that it introduces three “Targets”. The FACCE-JPI monitoring and evaluation framework describes the relationship of Targets as follows: the alignment and coordination of national and European programmes (Target 1) is needed to ensure high quality transnational research activities (Target 2). These research activities in turn will contribute to the overall goal of the JPI: […] tackling the societal challenge (Target 3). FACCE-JPI has conceptualised and operationalised Target 1 (Alignment), developed a questionnaire to the Governing Board, and collected monitoring data.
