European Partnerships

European partnerships are initiatives in which the EU, together with public and private partners, aims to boost the contribution of science and innovation as a driver of the economy.

In this edition the framework program includes a great commitment to the cooperation of the private sector, so 49 public-private partnerships have been validated that will play key roles in the program.

The aim is to lead new research and innovation activities to achieve specific ambitious and measurable goals that benefit societies.
