Project sheet - ERA-IB (Towards an ERA in industrial biotechnology)

Project ID: 35581
Funded under: FP6-COORDINATION

Abstract

This is a brochure for the ERA-IB project. Funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), ERA-IB's main objective was to increase Europe's competitiveness in the area of Industrial biotechnology (IB) by providing a platform for long-lasting collaboration and cooperation, thus increasing quality and efficiency of national biotechnology research and development programmes. In order to encourage fast implementation, two separate calls for proposals were foreseen, targeting cooperation between national entities, as well as a transnational programme. The platform developed- consisting of European Research Area network (ERA-NET)s in areas, such as plant genomics, chemistry and bioenergy - facilitated the exchange of information and experiences and served as a tool for alignment of relevant activities of these ERA-NETs. Finally, ERA-IB intended to appoint a transnational task force that would be charged with overseeing the implementation of the research agenda.
