Call for proposals 2017 - H2020 - Tackling grand interdisciplinary science and technology challenges H2020-FETFLAG-2018-2020 Closed!


FET Flagships tackle grand Science and Technology challenges expected to result in 'game changing' impacts on economy and society, benefitting European citizens and paving the way for global technological and industrial leadership. Because of their ambition, their scale and their interdisciplinary nature, FET Flagships can only be realised through a long-term and sustained effort at European level, by building on large scale research cooperation across academia and industry and across national research programmes, and by mobilising Europe's best researchers around an ambitious R&D roadmap.


Activities in this work programme will:

  1. further support the two running Flagships on the basis of their FPAs, following Specific Grant Agreements (SGAs) and other actions launched under previous work programmes;
  2. kick-start the support to the new Flagship on Quantum Technologies (QT);
  3. further support the FLAGERA and QUANTERA ERA-NETs that bring together national and regional funding agencies from the Member States and Associated Countries in support respectively of the two running Flagships and the QT one; and
  4. include preparatory actions to prepare the ground for new candidate FET Flagship initiatives.

This call covers the following topics:

  • FETFLAG-01-2018: Preparatory Actions for new FET Flagships
  • FETFLAG-02-2018: ERA-NET Cofund for FET Flagships
  • FETFLAG-03-2018: FET Flagship on Quantum Technologies
