  • Clean Hydrogen (built on FCH JU) to accelerate the market entry of nearly-zero GHG-emission hydrogen-based technologies across energy, transport & industrial end-users, covering the full value chain for competitive hydrogen and fuel cells technologies, ensuring pole position for Europe to realise the potential of hydrogen technologies at scale
  • Integrated Air Traffic Management (build on SESAR JU) to enhance the performance of the Union’s air traffic management system as technological pillar of the Single European Sky (SES) and more broadly of the air transport sector as a whole.
  • Towards zero-emission road transport _2ZERO (built on cPPP European Green Vehicle Initiative) to accelerate the transformation of the road transport system into zero-emission mobility through world-class European research and innovation and industrial system, with a competitive new generation of light weight, energy efficient and affordable vehicles and support measures to facilitate their rapid deployment
  • Mobility and Safety for Automated Road Transport (buit on cPPP 5G, cPPP Big Data, cPPP batteries, ECSEL JU, Shift2Rail JU, SESAR JU) for Long-term framework to the strategic planning of research and pre-deployment programmes for connected and automated driving on roads at EU and national levels in a systemic approach (vehicle, interactions, infrastructure, technical and non-technical enablers and societal impact)
  • Zero-emission waterborne transport (New European partnership) to radically transform inland and maritime waterborne transport, develop knowledge, technologies and demonstrate solutions that will enable zero-emission shipping for all ship types and services. It will contribute to further reinforcing Europe’s global leadership in green shipping technologies. This will create a foundation for shipping to underpin a carbon neutral future with the demonstration of deployable zero-emission solutions suitable for all main ship types and services by 2030
  • European industrial battery value chain (New European partnership) to develop world-class European research and innovation system on batteries, with a view towards European industrial leadership. Develop a coherent strategic programme, in cooperation with industry and research community, substantially contributing to fulfilling the Paris Agreement, and enhance the competitiveness of current and emerging European industries along the battery value chain.
  • Transforming Europe's rail system (built on Shit2Rail JU) to define, design and implement the full spectrum of rail research and innovation activities, from fundamental research to large-scale demos, to trigger a major transformation of the railway system as the backbone of an integrated and sustainable mobility in Europe, maximising socio-economic benefits.


  • Global competitive space systems (New European partnership) to perform Pfast and structured advances on selected innovative critical space systems research and innovation roadmaps such as for example reusability, in orbit demonstration, assembly and manufacturing, so as to acquire global industrial leadership

Health and pharmaceuticals

  • Innovative Health Initiative (built on IMI JU) to contribute to the objectives defined in the Beating Cancer Plan, Industrial Strategy for Europe and Pharmaceutical Strategy for Europe.


  • High performance computing (build on EuroHPC JU) to establish an integrated world-class supercomputing & data infrastructure and to support a highly competitive and innovation HPC and Big Data ecosystem
  • Key Digital Technologies (built on ECSEL JU) to boost digital transformation
  • Smart Networks and Services (built on cPPP 5G) to enable the infrastructure basis in terms of key technologies and deployment for Next-Generation Internet services used by citizens and for "smart" services required by vertical sectors such as transport, energy, manufacturing, health and media
  • AI, data and robotics (built on cPPP Big Data and cPPP Robotic) to help structuring the European AI community, develop a strategic research agenda and federate efforts around a topic that holds great potential to benefit our society and economy.


  • Clean Steel - Low Carbon Steelmaking (build on FCU JU) to Provide a EU critical mass to ensure and in particular to upscale breakthrough technology, facilitate joint vision development, agenda setting and synergies of different EU funds, contribute to the evolution to a programming approach in research and innovation.
  • Carbon Neutral and Circular Industry (built on cPPP SPIRE) to transform European process industries to make them carbon neutral by 2050, to turn them into circular industries together with material and recycling industries, and to enhance their technological leadership at global level and international competitiveness.

Bio-based economy

  • Circular bio-based Europe: Sustainable, inclusive and circular bio-based solutions (build on BBI JU) for sustainable and climate-neutral solutions accelerating the transition to a healthy planet, where renewable products and nutrients will be produced from biomass and waste instead of non-renewable fossil and mineral resources. This creates awareness, capacities and appropriate structures extending beyond industry partners, mobilising producers of biological resources and end-users.
