ERA-NET Plus under Framework Programme 7

In Framework Programme 7 (FP7) the ERA-NET instrument achieves the objective of developing and strengthening the coordination of national and regional research programmes through two specific actions: 

  • 'ERA-NET actions' – providing a framework for actors implementing public research programmes to coordinate their activities, e.g. by developing joint activities or by mutually supporting joint calls for transnational proposals.
  • 'ERA-NET Plus actions' – providing, in a limited number of cases with high European added value, additional EU financial support to facilitate joint calls for proposals between national and/or regional programmes.
