Q: Is the JIP open to New Participants?

Yes, the JIP is open to New Participants at any time. The JIP is run in yearly phases. Each phase runs from approximately May 1 of a given year to April 31 of the next year. New Participants pay a one-time entrance fee in addition to the regular participation fee for the on-going phase. New Participants get a two-day training session for their staff so that they can catch up with the other Participants quickly.
