Detailed description of the topical fields and the application procedure is given in the Guide for Proposers.
The M-ERA.NET Transnational Call 2016 is open since 15 March 2016. It is a two step application procedure with a deadline for submission of mandatory pre- proposals 14 June 2016. A detailed Guide for Proposers including the full Call text is published
on www.m-era.net. Each applicant is requested to contact his/her national/regional contact person to confirm national/regional funding rules. Contact persons are listed in the Guide for Proposers.
M-ERA.NET will enable collaboration between leading academic and industrial research partners from European and non-European countries and regions and will facilitate access to previously inaccessible new markets.
The joint calls for transnational RTD cooperation will mobilise a critical mass of public funding to support key players in materials research to intensify pan- European partnerships and to encourage newcomers to transnational RTD cooperation to realise innovative RTD projects.
This increased interdisciplinary cooperation and exploitation of European and international road-maps will create a new dynamism in the field of materials research and innovation whilst stimulating the gener- ation of leading knowledge along the innovation chain.
