Implementation Plan

The Implementation Plan translates the objectives of the Strategic Research Agenda into tangible targets for the next three years and defines concrete funding and non-funding activities that will be carried out by the HDHL in the coming years.


The Implementation Plan 2022-2024 has been developed in a joint effort by the Management Board, Scientific Advisory Board, and the Stakeholder Advisory Board. The following aspects have been identified as being crucial for the success of HDHL and will be addressed in detail in the different chapters.

Current Implementation Plan

The goas of the Implementation Plan 2022-2024 are:

  • Alignment at national, European, and international level including broader engagement and involvement of the member states to strengthen existing and build new partnerships;
  • Targeted joint actions to improve the impact of research investments with joint funding activities on key research topics, industry collaboration and by supporting research infrastructures;
  • Effective exploitation, dissemination and stakeholder involvement to achieve higher impact of our collective efforts;
  • Roadmap for sustainability leading the JPI HDHL to a self-sustainable future in close connection to Horizon Europe.

The implementation of these activities will require commitment and dedication of all involved partners within and outside of HDHL. In order to realize this ambition, activities will be performed in close collaboration with policy makers, (health) professionals and other end users of food, nutrition & health research investments.
