THE JEDI PLEDGE
The Joint European Disruptive Initiative is a common good, not for profit organisation powered by civil society and the deeptech & science ecosystems - whose purpose is to bring Europe and democracies to a leadership position in innovation and technology.
JEDI’s mission is to push the frontiers of innovation, to invent the Next Big Thing, and to provide free societies & economies with a decisive competitive advantage that will ensure prosperity, sustainability and democratic resilience. To accomplish its mission, JEDI launches Technology and Scientific GrandChallenges focused on disruptive innovations.
JEDI focuses on 6 major societal missions : fighting climate change, massively improving healthcare, ensuring a human-centric digital transition, turbocharging education, preserving oceans, exploring space - and on the technologies that will have a gamechanging impact on them.
We believe in deep humanistic and democratic values, and we are committed to ensure that these values are served by science & technology.
We consider that science & technology is at the core of our societies, of geopolitics, of the future of democratic systems and we are, therefore, passionate about emerging technologies and their capabilities to have a positive, Technology for Good impact on the world.
We are convinced that complex and exponential challenges of our times will only be solved if we have the strategic foresight and creativity to act now for the future, with an interdisciplinary approach combining all hard and social sciences, and with the collective goodwill and passion to craft the future we want.
We believe that civil society has the boldness and agility to ensure democracies remain innovation leaders in the 21st technological century. We call upon Governments and public institutions to fully and practically support it, as we will need to work hand in hand to achieve this goal.
We commit to actively support JEDI’s mission in our professional or personal capacity.
