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 and continue the work done with H2020’s cPPPs, demanding from the partners a stronger and higher funding commitment.

The agreement is dedicated to specifying the objectives of the partnership, starting with a roadmap, the related commitments in terms of contributions from the partners, the key performance and impact indicators as well as outputs to be delivered and reporting modalities. It’s expected to achieve a higher visibility, making it easier to identify Co-Programmed calls.

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) that will be funded up to 60% of the direct costs.

On January 26th, 2022, the European Commission published the Memoranda of Understanding (MoU) of eleven Co-programmed European Partnerships. Together with industry, the European Commission is working in these partnerships to boost investment in research and innovation and to address significant challenges in a variety of areas. These partnerships will receive over EUR 7.8 billion from Horizon Europe, and in total, private partners and Member States commit around EUR 19 billion.
