Public Private Partnerships Strengthening Innovation and Research in europe

In fact, H2020 wholly deserves the attention of the interim evaluation to review and revise its capacity to maintain a high level of efficacy in delivering innovation to Europe’s citizens. Doubly important is the public’s awareness and perception of these innovation initiatives. Whereas some projects may be so focused as to invite very specialized interest groups, the JTIs offer an innovation scope relevant to several Member States and its citizens. Key technological advances must have the capacity to open and drive new markets. The breakthroughs required in sectors as large as Health and Transport, Clean Energy and perhaps a testament to its importance in European society– the two separate initiatives on Information and Communications Technologies lend themselves well to the management of research programs in an “integrated manner”. As the evaluation of H2020 thus far reveals certain gaps in its implementation, it is possible the European Union already possesses working solutions within the breadth of financing or organizing programs such as JTIs and the accompanying Joint Undertakings.
