On a practical note: NCP Flanders will publish any updates (news, events, ...) about a concrete partnership within the programme domain(s) a partnership belongs to.

What are European Partnerships?

European Partnerships bring the European Commission and private and/or public partners together to address some of Europe’s most pressing challenges through concerted research and innovation initiatives. They are a key implementation tool of Horizon Europe, and contribute significantly to achieving the EU’s political priorities.

By bringing private and public partners together, European Partnerships help to avoid the duplication of investments and contribute to reducing the fragmentation of the research and innovation landscape in the EU.

Types of partnerships

There are 3 types of partnerships:

  • Co-programmed European Partnerships: partnerships between the Commission and mostly private (and sometimes public) partners.
  • Co-funded European Partnerships: partnerships involving EU countries, with research funders and other public authorities at the core of the consortium
  • Institutionalised European Partnerships: partnerships in the field of research and innovation between the Union, EU member states and/or industry.

The partnerships

For an overview of the partnership candidates, we refer to the official website of the European Union. You'll find them back by domain:

Autoship - a new and durable way of freight transport

Autoship is, as the name suggests, an acronym for autonomous ship. Just like with self-driving cars, the possibilities of an unmanned boat seem endless. It can create more efficient freight transport, around the clock deliveries and these are just a few of the examples. The project has two societal challenges.

At first, De Vlaamse Waterweg was a bit hesitant as their experience with FP7 or Horizon 2020 projects was limited and they had not been very successful up until then. The fact that they were already doing basic research on the topic of autonomous boats, and the administrative help of NCP FLanders helped De Vlaamse waterweg to cross the line and get involved.
