Call for Proposals FP7-ERANET-2011-RTD - Cooperation Programme FP7-ERANET-2011-RTD Closed!

Objectives

Eranet objetive is to reduce fragmentation of research efforts made at national level in Europe in order to:

  • Achieve critical mass, to ensure better use of scare resources
  • Join Forces to provide common answers to common problems.
  • Addres global issues.
  • Develop common approaches (e.g. ethics, standards).
  • Addres specific geographical issues.
  • Speak with “one voice” to third countries.

The call for proposal in ERANET 2011 for RDT cover actions from the following workprogrammes:

  • THEME 1:  Health
  • THEME 2: FOOD, AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES, AND BIOTECHNOLOGY
  • THEME 4: NANOSCIENCES, NANOTECHNOLOGIES, MATERIALS AND NEW PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES - NMP
  • THEME 5: ENERGY
  • THEME 7: TRANSPORT (INCLUDING AERONAUTICS)
  • THEME 8: SOCIO-ECONOMIC SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

 

Actions

THEME 1:  Health

  • HEALTH.2011.2.2.1-5: ERA-Net on disease-related neurosciences.

This action should improve the linking and efficient integration and coordination of national/regional programmes for disease-related neuroscience research, building on previous activities in this field.

  • HEALTH.2011.2.4.3-5: ERA-NET on diabetes prevention and treatment.

The creation of an ERA-NET in diabetes prevention and treatment will help in overcoming the fragmentation of research activities, programmes and policies across Europe and contribute to increased sharing of best practices and best use of public health resources.


THEME 2: FOOD, AGRICULTURE AND FISHERIES, AND BIOTECHNOLOGY

  • KBBE.2011.1.1-05: Deepened and enlarged European cooperation in the area of Molecular Plant Sciences - ERA-NET

It is expected that further coordination efforts in the area of molecular plant sciences will consolidate the initiated process of identifying major research needs, extending the partnership, pooling resources for funding and implementing research activities in a synergistic manner. Ultimately, the cooperation shall lead to a self-sustainable and long- lasting network of funders in the area of plant molecular sciences, enabling the translation of information gained from innovative fundamental research into social and economic benefits. The European added value lies in supporting and enhancing the ERA on molecular plant sciences.

  • KBBE.2011.1.2-08: Forest Research in the Mediterranean Region – Mandatory ICPC (Mediterranean partner countries)

The ERA-NET is expected to reinforce scientific cooperation on forests throughout the Mediterranean area (EU and non-EU countries) thereby fighting fragmentation and maximising the impact of research activities on sustainable forest management, including management of forest resources to mitigate and adapt to climatic threats.

  • KBBE.2011.1.3-05: Animal health and welfare – ERA-NET

It is expected that further coordination efforts in the area of animal health and welfare will consolidate the initiated process of identifying major research needs and pooling resources for funding and implementing research activities in a synergistic manner and avoiding fragmentation.

  • KBBE.2011.2.6-02: Sustainable food production and consumption - ERA-NET

This action will enhance the links between national/regional activities. The coordination efforts are expected to help in identifying major research gaps, extending Europe-wide partnerships, pooling resources for funding, implementing research activities in a synergistic and inter-disciplinary manner and ensuring better knowledge management. The increased coherence of sustainable food production and consumption programmes, following a food chain approach from farm to fork, will improve the efficiency of human and financial resources and scientific infrastructure. In turn, this will contribute to consolidating the European research area in sustainable food production, supply and consumption, improving the welfare of European citizens and strengthening Europe’s influence and leadership in international food research.

  • KBBE.2011.3.3-01: Deepened and enlarged European cooperation in the area of Industrial Biotechnology - ERA-NET

Projects supported under this topic should lead to a greater integration of research actors and activities from across the enlarged European Union, and the candidate countries. It is expected that further coordination efforts in the area of industrial biotechnology will consolidate the initiated process of identifying major research needs, extending the partnership, pooling resources for funding, and implementing research activities in a synergistic manner. Ultimately, the cooperation shall lead to a self-sustainable and long-lasting network of programme managers in the area of industrial biotechnology, enabling the translation of information gained from innovative fundamental research into social, environmental, geographical and economic benefits. The European added value lies in supporting and enhancing the ERA in the field of industrial biotechnology. The project should contribute to realising the objectives of environmental and innovation policy initiatives, such as the Lead Market in Bio-based products, the Environmental Technology Action Plan, and the EU Strategy for Key Enabling Technologies.

  • KBBE.2011.3.6-06: Synthetic Biology– ERA-NET

Projects supported under this topic should lead to a greater integration of research actors and activities from across the enlarged European Union, and the candidate countries. It is expected that this proposal will consolidate the basis for coordination efforts in the area of Synthetic Biology; seeking complementarities between national activities and pooling resources for funding and implementing research activities in a synergistic manner.

THEME 4: NANOSCIENCES, NANOTECHNOLOGIES, MATERIALS AND NEW PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES - NMP

  • NMP.2011.2.3-2 ERA-NET on research on materials science and engineering, including international cooperation
  • NMP.2011.4.0-6 ERA-NET on the industrial handling of raw materials for European industries
  • NMP.2011.4.0-7 ERA-NET on industrial safety

THEME 5: ENERGY

  • ENERGY.2011.10.2-2: Supporting the coordination of national research activities of Member States and Associated States in the field of GEOTHERMAL energy (ERA-NET)

This coordination is expected to enhance synergies and overcome fragmentation in the geothermal energy research area and complement the EERA activities on geothermal energy. Joint programming activities between Member States involved in the project are expected to arise naturally.

  • ENERGY.2011.10.2-3: Supporting the coordination of national research activities of Member States and Associated States in the field of OCEAN energy (ERA-NET)

Ocean energy R,D&D activities are carried out separately in several Member States. The coordination offered by this ERA-NET will enhance synergies and raise the scattered profile of a sector having difficulties to build a mature industrial and commercial status.

THEME 7: TRANSPORT (INCLUDING AERONAUTICS)

  • GC.SST.2011.7-8. ERA-Net Plus ‘Electromobility’

As a complement to the European Green Car Initiative, a significant participation of the Member States and Associated States in shaping of the European landscape of Electromobility is expected. Better use of scarce resources and the avoidance of double funding. Reduction of fragmentation of research efforts made at national and regional level. The ERA-NET Plus can provide a basis for a long-term platform on Electromobility.

THEME 8: SOCIO-ECONOMIC SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

  • SSH.2011.3.2-2. Drug demand and supply reduction (ERA-Net).

The ERA-NET will establish a platform for the identification of priorities for research in the illicit drug field and the development of a joint strategy, ultimately leading to the pooling of resources and the launch of joint research projects, enhancing collaboration between
researchers from different countries.

  • SSH.2011.3.3-1. Cultural encounters (ERA-Net Plus)

The challenge is thus to understand how cultures develop, mix or do not mix, co-exist or compete and how this phenomenon affects the development of social groups, regions and countries in a broader global setting.
