"ERA-NET Actions": Provisions for the Preparation of Era-Net Actions and their practical implementation

Funded under: FP7, OTH-ERA-NET PLUS


The ERA-NET scheme is one of the tools of the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) to support the coordination of non-Community research programmes. It is implemented under both the Cooperation and Capacities programmes of FP7. Annex 4 to the Cooperation work programme provides the legal basis for the ERA-NET scheme and its implementation.
The ERA-NET scheme was first introduced in the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). Given its success and long term perspective, the scheme is continued and reinforced in FP7. It is composed of:
1. ERA-NET actions to step up the coordination between national or regional research programmes. The description of these actions is the purpose of this issue paper.
2. ERA-NET Plus, a new option added to the ERA-NET scheme in FP7 allowing, in a limited number of cases, Community financial support to be provided for "topping-up" joint trans-national research funding. The modalities of ERA-NET Plus are described in a separate issue paper called "ERA-NET Plus actions - Provisions for the preparation of ERA-NET Plus actions and their practical implementation"
