THE JOINT EUROPEAN DISRUPTIVE INITIATIVE

The Joint European Disruptive Initiative is the initiative for disruptive innovation to bring Europe on par with the US and China in breakthrough technologies. It is launching Technology Challenges to push the frontiers of innovation, to invent the next big thing, and to provide Europeans with the means of acquiring economic, industrial and scientific power that will ensure prosperity and democratic resilience. It is often called 'the European Darpa'.

HOW DOES JEDI WORK ?

JEDI is a common-good agency with a radical new innovation governance system--a foundation powered by Europe’s deeptech ecosystem. Inspired by DARPA’s methodology around speed, high expectations & massive risk-taking, JEDI is driven by European, humanistic values. Convinced that innovation can act in the public interest, JEDI aims to make a significant contribution to the major societal challenges of our time.

Focused on humanistic values, a purpose-driven approach to solving major societal issues in :

  • environment

  • energy

  • healthcare

  • digital

  • new frontiers (space and oceans) through innovation.

In order to craft the GrandChallenges, JEDI is developing unique insights on critical strategic technologies  and their related geopolitical and societal issues through multiple ways(technology reports, moonshot days, high level meetings, policy briefings, CEO reports and workshops)
