Joint Industry Projects (JIPs)
Shared problem, shared benefits
Joint Industry Projects (JIPs) are a way of creating exclusive knowledge in partnership. Together we look for a solution to a specific problem requiring fundamental or applied research.
The goal of a JIP is to gain knowledge or knowhow based on a concerted effort by various industrial and/or research parties. Projects typically addressed in JIPs are either too complex or costly to be solved by one party alone or require specialized knowledge or equipment, which is not readily available for individual parties (e.g. hydraulic modeling facilities). The parties involved jointly agree on a scope of work, time schedule and contract conditions. JIP participants work together, share costs and benefits.
