  1. Co-programmed European Partnerships - Between the Commission and private and/or public partners. Based on memoranda of understanding and/or contractual arrangements

  2. Co-funded European Partnerships using a program co-fund action - Partnerships involving EU countries, with research funders and other public authorities at the core of the consortium.

  3. Institutionalised European Partnerships
