The Programme Document Workshop aimed to present the draft Programme Document from the JOPRAD Project, which forms the proposed scientific and technical basis of a potential future European Joint Programme.  More specifically, this workshop was the occasion to present:

  • The background for setting-up a Joint Programme;
  • The research domains defined as suitable for a JP by all the R&D actors (Waste Management Organisations, Technical Support Organisations and Research Entities) and how these domains were selected and then prioritised while maintaining the independency of the actors;
  • How the Civil Society has been engaged in the process and how the interaction with stakeholders can be envisaged within a JP;
  • Examples of potential projects (RD&D projects and Knowledge Management activities) that could be carried out within the first phase of a Joint Programme; and
  • A possible governance and implementation mechanism.
