Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) are legal entities which are proposed as a new way of realising public-private partnerships in relevant industrial research and development fields at European level.
JTIs arise primarily from the work of European Technology Platforms (ETPs). In a small number of cases, ETPs have achieved such an ambitious scale and scope that they will require the mobilisation of public and private investments as well as substantial research resources to implement important elements of their 'Strategic Research Agendas'. JTIs are proposed as an effective means of meeting the needs of this small number of ETPs.
