JOIST ecosystem structure supports the following 3 types of collaboration:

  • Contracts with small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
  • Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with third parties and associate members.
  • Application forms with official members.

After choosing the collaboration type that suits your profile, we enable the respective services and benefits.

After signing the Memorandum of Understanding with JOIST, which formalizes our organizations’ partnership, we create a customized time plan in order to identify and make the most of all the selected collaboration opportunities. Furthermore, we welcome you to enjoy all the rights and benefits that the official membership brings, while we share your services portfolio to our network and keep you informed about new trends and updates in your sectors of interest.

JOIST enhances knowledge distribution, boosts entrepreneurial spirit, establishes collaborative networks, and offers inclusive working practices in four main clusters: eHealth, Educational Technology, AgroTech and eTourism. This four-cluster scheme will function as the port of call for academic institutions, SMEs, business-minded individuals, innovation enthusiasts, startuppers and anyone interested in developing, testing, and learning new things. Even if your expertise and future goals do not match any of these clusters, we can still offer opportunities, resources and flexibility to evolve your innovation in your field, within the JOIST ecosystem.

JOIST offers a wide range of services to increase profile awareness, leverage project development and growth. Through our innovative ecosystem, we help our members promote their profile, success stories and achievements to an extensive partners’ network across Europe, to gain access to JOIST facilities, smart tools and software solutions in order to put forward ideas, identify strategic partnerships, reach new markets and add value to their existing audience and activities. Moreover, we assist them in getting priority participation in consortia of EU projects, coordinated by JOIST and its partners, by receiving customized and personalized suggestions for funding opportunities.

There are no monthly, annually, or hidden fees or charges for participating in JOIST eDIH and its clusters.
