Court of Auditors identifies target programmes

The performance of research and innovation agencies and Joint Technology Initiatives will be assessed by the European Court of Auditors during 2016, the watchdog agency has said.

The 2016 work programme for the court sets out a review of Joint Technology Initiatives (JTIs) and the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) as priority audit tasks for the coming year.

INEA runs parts of Horizon 2020, managing funding for projects under the societal challenges of transport, energy, food security and smart cities. JTI’s are public-private partnerships under Horizon 2020 on topics including innovative medicines, fuel cells, bio-based industries, railway infrastructure, air traffic management and electronics. Total funding for the JTIs until 2020 is earmarked at €19.5bn, out of which the Commission will pay €7.3bn.
