Case studies of novel modalities for aligning national research strategies, programmes, and activities

This publication contains seven case studies that examine novel alignment modalities of national research strategies, programmes and other activities. By ‘novel’ modalities, instruments, or approaches are meant that contribute to alignment of research activities at the strategic or operational level that are at a pilot stage or have been introduced in schemes or networks other than the JPI or ERA-NETs.

The case studies do not constitute in-depth evaluations of ongoing practices. Instead they aim to illustrate how select novel 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 key benefits and challenges practitioners have faced when putting in place such approaches, and the key factors for their successful implementation.
