EU cohesion policy and its financial instruments - the Structural Funds - give strong priority to the development of research and innovation capacities, particularly in less developed regions. Instruments for public to public partnerships like Joint Programming Initiatives, the ERA-NET Scheme and Article Initiatives have been developed to promote coordination between the national research funding organisations.
