Joint Institute for Innovation Policy (JIIP)

The Joint Institute for Innovation Policy (JIIP) is a shared cooperation platform of TNO Netherlands, VTT Finland, TECNALIA Corporación Tecnológica in Spain and JOANNEUM RESEARCH. Its objective is to achieve a prominent international position and offer consulting services for research and innovation policy.

This drive toward international positioning is intended to promote shared synergies and benefits. These include developing critical dimensions of major international research projects and taking part in joint activities in other national markets and in human resources development (e.g., personnel mobility, shared educational and training programmes), to utilize all aspects of strategic alignment in research capacities.
