Joint Transnational Co-Funding Opportunities-ERA-Nets and JPIs

European Research Area Networks (ERA-Nets) are networks of public research organisations that coordinate joint research activities in research areas which are of significant strategic value and relevance to the EU. ERA-Nets are initiated by ERA-Net calls in the Horizon 2020 work programme to which consortia of research funding agencies (ERA-Net consortia) submit ERA-Net proposals.  If approved by the Commission, the ERA-Net consortium forms an ERA-Net which runs joint transnational calls and other transnational activities.  The first joint call run by an ERA-Net is 33% co-funded by the European Commission. 

 Science Foundation Ireland are aiming to participate in the following upcoming Horizon 2020 ERA-Nets:


The applications are currently being submitted to the European Commission through the associated consortia (see below). More details to follow shortly.
