Co-programmed European Partnerships

These are partnerships between the Commission and private and/or public partners. They are based on memoranda of understanding and/or contractual arrangements.

The agreement is specifying the objectives of the partnership, the related commitments from all involved sides for financial and/or in-kind contributions of the partners, the key performance and impact indicators as well as outputs to be delivered and reporting modalities.

They include the identification of complementary research and innovation activities that are implemented separately by the partners and by the EU through work programmes (comitology procedure).
