Research joint ventures (RJV) are a third option beneath directives and action plans for European policy to establish emerging markets. Further RJV increase and strengthen European Integration and competitiveness. The paper analyzes empirically the dimensions of RJV in Europe. The automotive industry is the most important industry for the wealth of the EU. Consequently, RJV in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems are examined. The triangle between political goals, technological developments, and economic requirements will receive a thorough examination. One of the lighthouse projects in Europe is CONVERGE. CONVERGE develops pioneering approaches to traffic management and vehicle safety. Still a holistic system architecture for flexible interaction between different service providers and communications network operators is missing in a decentralized, scalable structure. The aim of the project CONVERGE is to close this gap. The paper shows the transitions, interlocking and permeability of RJV. The new approach of the institutional economic role model (IERM) will be used in Europe as a blueprint for the way to initiate politically technological leadership and competitiveness.
