Joint Technology Initiatives

Joint Technology Initiatives (Public-Private Partnerships) are aimed at tackling Europe’s major societal challenges, boosting growth and jobs. JTIs are active in a number of areas of strategic importance for the EU and organise their own research agenda and award funding for projects on the basis of open calls:

  • Clean Sky 2 (CS 2): to develop cleaner, quieter aircraft with significantly less CO2 emissions
  • Shift2Rail: to develop better trains and railway infrastructure that will drastically reduce costs and improve capacity, reliability and punctuality
