THE JOINT EUROPEAN
DISRUPTIVE INITIATIVE - JEDI

JEDI is the initiative for disruptive innovation to bring Europe in a leadership position in breakthrough technologies. It is launching Technology GrandChallenges to push the frontiers of science & technology, and to invent the Next Big Thing.

It aims to provide Europeans and democracies with the means of technological and scientific power, for prosperity and societal resilience. Driven by humanistic values, JEDI is focused on solving major societal challenges of our time through innovation, with a method based on speed, excellence and bold risk-taking. It is often called 'the European Darpa'.

JEDI is a non-profit, common-good agency powered by Europe’s civil society and its tech and science ecosystem. It is completely independent and financed by the contribution of the 4.100 JEDIs in 29 countries from academia, major corporations and deeptech startups, as well as by foundations and public funding.
