Joint programming initiative aims to address major societal challenges which are too great for national research programmes to tackle them effectively on their own – a vast bulk of research programmes in Europe are run in an isolated way, leading to unwanted fragmentation or ineffectiveness. Such challenges include, for example, addressing climate change, ensuring energy and food supply or a healthy ageing of citizens.

The following Joint Programming Initiatives have been identified to date:


Following a decision of Research Council, Lithuania has joined the Joint Programming Initiatives in year 2010 and to this day participates in two programming initiatives:

  • Cultural Heritage and Global Change, 
    represented by Ina Marčiulionytė (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) and Audronė Kasperavičienė (State Cultural reserve of Vilnius Castles)
  • Healthy and Productive Seas and Oceans,
    represented by Dalius Krinickas (Ministry of Environment, Water Division) and Brigita Serafinavičiūtė (Research Council)
