Short description:

This publication contains seven case studies that examine novel alignment modalities of national research strategies,
programmes and other activities. These case studies have been conducted in the framework of Task 4.3 of the ERALEARN2020 Project (2015-18), and build on the “Typology of Alignment” developed under the project’s Task 4.1.
In our context, novelty refers to approaches, modalities and instruments that are new to the overall JPI community
according to one of the following criteria:
 The approach/modality/instrument has only recently been implemented by single JPIs and is not a common
policy across the majority of JPIs
 The approach/modality/instrument covers topics (e.g. open access, project selection criteria, stakeholder
engagement) that have not yet been strongly emphasized by the majority of JPIs
 The approach/modality/instrument has not yet been utilized by the JPI community at all, but could be of
potential interest for the JPI community
By ‘novel’ we mean modalities, instruments, or approaches that contribute to alignment of research activities at the
strategic or operational level that are at a pilot stage or have been introduced in schemes or networks other than the JPI
or ERA-NETs.
The case studies do not constitute in-depth evaluations of ongoing practices. Instead they aim to illustrate how select
novel approaches have been used to promote alignment at strategic, operational and financial levels, and what the key
“lessons learned” are from these experiences. The case studies outline the key benefits and challenges practitioners have
faced when putting in place such approaches, and the key factors for their successful implementation.
