HTML Document Activities of International Cooperation-ERA-NET & ERA-NET PLUS

Released 06/09/2007

ERA-NET Plus actions allow the Commission to provide an incentive to the organisation of joint calls between national or regional research programmes by “topping-up” joint trans-national funding with Community funding.

Call identifier: FP7-INCO-2007-3
Date of publication: 2 October 2007 (=one month prior to or after)
Deadline: 4 February 2008, at 17.00, Brussels local time (can be delayed by up to 2 months)
Revised indicative budget: 11 MILLION EUR (except last change, & including costs of evaluator)


Eligible partners for ERA-NET actions are only:


v     Programme owners are typically national/regional ministries/governments responsible for defining, financing or managing research programmes carried out at national or regional level.


v     Programme “managers” (such as research councils or funding agencies) are other national or regional organisations that manage research programmes under the supervision of the programme owners.


v     Programme owners (typically national ministries/regional authorities) which do not have a running or fully fledged research programme at the moment of submitting an ERA-NET proposal, but which are planning or have committed to set up such a programme, are also eligible if their participation is well justified and adds value to the overall programme coordination. As such, countries or regions which have less diverse research programmes (in particular new Member States and candidate associated countries) will find their involvement in the ERA-NET scheme greatly facilitated.


Note that research organisations or universities which are not programme owners or managers are not eligible partners for ERA-NET actions.
