  Joint Programming Newsletter

Joint Programming is a research and innovation policy concept driven by societal challenges. Its aim is to tackle grand societal challenges through more efficient use of resources, by the alignment of funding at national level and through decreasing fragmentation in the European Research Area (ERA). This newsletter is written by the division Wageningen International at Wageningen UR (University & Research centre) with the aim to provide up-to-date information about the European Research Area (ERA) and its research initiatives in the area of the Bioeconomy, specifically about the 10 current Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs).
