The primary focus of EERA is to accelerate the development of energy technologies to the point where they can be embedded in industry-driven research. In order to achieve this goal, EERA streamlines and coordinates national and European energy R&D programmes.

The EERA Joint Programmes (JP) constitute strategic, permanent collaborations between major research organisations and institutes forming a virtual centre of excellence. In response to the EU’s SET-PLAN, the Joint Programmes implement the need for better coordination among Member States, maximising synergies and identifying priorities for future funding.
