FET ERA-NET Cofund
to advance the construction of the European Research Area in the FET domain by sharing a common vision of the various relevant efforts in Europe and fostering cooperation towards the coordinated development of radically new future technologies.
Proposals should coordinate and pool the necessary financial resources from the participating national (or regional) research programmes in the FET domain by implementing a joint transnational call for proposals resulting in grants to third parties with EU co-funding, possibly followed by further transnational calls for proposals without EU co-funding. The action may also organise additional joint activities in the FET domain between the participating funding agencies. Two activities are mandatory:
- Identifying future and emerging technologies where transnational cooperation and community structuration is needed, in complementarity and synergy with FET;
- Developing strategic agendas for these topics and accompanying the structuration of the related communities through workshops and transversal activities.
The partnership is expected to aim at being pan-European and as inclusive as possible.
Closer coordination and greater mobilisation and pooling of resources between regional, national and EU research programmes in the FET domain.
