Joint Programming Initiative programmes
Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage
The JPI CH promotes safeguarding Cultural Heritage in its broader sense, including tangible, intangible, and digital assets. Since its launch, a Strategic Research Agenda on Cultural Heritage has been implemented by European Member States and Associated Countries. Four joint calls have been run, with a fifth call on Conservation, Protection and Use in progress, and 38 transnational projects funded to date. Research projects have covered a wide range of topics, including understanding damage and decay mechanisms on tangible heritage; increasing understanding of cultural values, valuation, interpretation, ethics and identity; safeguarding tangible Cultural Heritage and its associated intangible expressions; providing sustainable strategies for protecting and managing Cultural Heritage; and promoting the use and re-use of all kinds of Cultural Heritage.
The current call is on Conservation, Protection and Use which is designed to support research into strategies, methodologies and tools to safeguard and use the physical components of our cultural heritage.
The deadline for submission of proposals is 3rd September 2019.

Joint Programming Initiative on Urban Europe
The JPI UE responds to the pressing need for ambitious, sustained and genuinely inter- and transdisciplinary research and innovation that will radically improve our understanding of the social, economic, and environment sustainability of urban areas. It will help Europe’s cities transition to a future that maximises their sustainability, resilience, and their liveability, vital in an era of global competition for commerce, industry, tourism, labour and investment. Since its launch, a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda has been developed and adopted. More than 70 projects have been funded and knowledge and innovation activities, such as conferences and dedicated workshops, have helped to translate research into policy recommendations.
AHRC, EPSRC and ESRC have jointly participated in the interdisciplinary ‘ERA-NET Cofund Smart Urban Futures’ call which funded 15 transnational projects focusing on a wide range of topics, from re-industrialisation to developing early warning pluvial flood tools.
AHRC, ESRC and Innovate UK have jointly supported 7 interdisciplinary projects as part of the ‘Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI)/Food-Water-Energy Nexus’ call established by the Belmont Forum in collaboration with the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe. The funded projects aim to find innovative new solutions to challenges connected with population increase, food shortages, scarce water and insufficient energy resource.

AHRC and ESRC have supported 7 international transdisciplinary consortia as part of the ‘Urban Migration’ call focusing on the way that migration affects and is affected by the life and functioning of cities.
There are no current funding opportunities. New partnerships and initiatives continue to be developed and any future funding calls will be advertised here.
