The closest you'll get is the UK's recent Project Tytan. Like most things to do with Typhoon its the UK driving it forward. The cost per hour has been dramatically lowered, and is apparently on track to hit the goal of a similar per hour cost as F-16. The benefit to industry and the RAF is the cost savings are re-invested in upgrades and enhancements (with one of the goals of reducing the number of fleets within fleets).

As this is UK funded the other partners will need to pay to get the benefits of the UK's work, apparently Saudi, Qatar and Oman will be getting the benefits from the UK and BAE as part of their support arrangements ... -strategy/
