As part of the development of the next EU Framework Programme (Horizon Europe), the role of Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) is under discussion. Based on the experiences of the ten JPIs and their recently presented long-term visions and strategies, the conference will focus on their role and contribution to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and implement mission-oriented programmes in Horizon Europe.

Discussions centered around the importance of science-policy cooperation to tackle global challenges and achieve Sustainable Development Goals. Sir Peter Gluckman, Chief Science Advisor of the Prime Minister of New Zealand, emphasised the challenge to re-establish science as a reliable source for evidence and the different roles of science to advice policies. JPIs shared experiences, presented some examples of their multiple achievements, and discussed with the audience the future role of JPIs in the ERA and Horizon Europe. It became obvious that the 10 JPIs are well in line with their aim to structure the ERA and already implement several of the requirements currently being discussed for the future missions in Horizon Europe.

The ten JPIs used the occasion of the conference to present a joint JPI Chairs declaration Driving research and innovation to address global challenges, summarising their views and ambitions for their future development and impact. The declaration was officially handed over to the Chair of the High Level Group for Joint Programming (GPC), emphasising once again the importance of the commitment by Member States as well as the support by the Framework Programme.

The conference was organised by JPI Urban Europe and FFG in cooperation with all JPIs and on behalf of the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology and the Austrian Ministry for Education, Science and Research, under the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the EU.
