Overview of ERA-NET Actions and other P2P partnerships in the Bioeconomy

This webpage gives an overview of the more than 30 ERA‐NETs set‐up in the Sixth and Seventh Framework Programmes on a wide range of scientific subjects and disciplines relevant to the bioeconomy in the areas of food, agriculture, forestry, marine, aquaculture, biodiversity and biotechnologies. New ERA-NET Cofund Actions are being set up under H2020, extending the list of networks. Additionally displayed in this overview are other public-to-public partnerships such as JPIs.

The fact sheet pages of the FP6 and FP7 ERA-NETs below are the digital version of the book on Bioeconomy ERA-NET Actions published April 2014. You are invited to browse through the pages, look through the lists of funded projects and read about the achievements of the networks. Please note that the information on these pages might be outdated, for up-to-date information please visit the project's website.

The format for the descriptions was inspired by the FP6 ERA-NET Synopsis series (available on the Commissions' website). As first sources of the information the CORDIS website, NETWATCH (now ERA-LEARN2020), and the websites of the individual ERA-NETs were used. ERA-NET coordinators or managers completed and updated the information compiled by the PLATFORM Office. Each contribution includes the acronym and title, project duration, coordinator, consortium, and a summary of the topic and objectives. On top of these facts about the network of funders, the ERA-NET descriptions in this book give a wealth of information about the joint calls that they launched. Call scope, budget and response are usually included, together with lists of all funded projects. It is through the joint calls that fund transnational research projects, and through other coordination activities, that the ERA-NET actions make a large contribution to underpinning the transitions towards a more sustainable, resilient, and prosperous European Bioeconomy.
