Short description:

Involvement of a wide range of actors, such as national policy makers, research funding organizations,
relevant research communities from academia and industry as well as user communities in Joint
Programming Initiatives (JPIs) and other Public-Public-Partnerships (P2Ps) is seen as a key prerequisite for achieving long-term impact on tackling societal challenges through research and
innovation (R&I) actions.
The most recent evaluation of the Joint Programming Process2
highlighted the view of JPIs that there is
a strong need to involve end-users and industry “when facing a societal challenge”. The evaluation
concludes that challenge-based R&I needs the active involvement of societal stakeholders and industry
to achieve maximum impact.
However, most JPIs “still wonder what would be the best way”. Against this background, this policy brief
on stakeholder engagement summarizes the current state-of-play of stakeholder engagement among
JPIs, highlights existing approaches of engagement, and introduces possible ways to advance
stakeholder engagement.
