Joint Call 2017

Cooperation in innovation, research and development is a key dimension in the relations between the European Union and Russia. In this context ERA.Net RUS Plus has implemented a Joint Call for transnational and scientifically excellent research projects in two funding lines: one for 'Innovation projects', and one for 'S&T projects' between 2014 and 2016. The second call round, the ‘ERA.Net RUS Plus Call 2017’ will continue the support of ‘S&T projects’ in the fields of Nanotechnologies, Health, Environment/Climate Change, Social Sciences & Humanities and Robotics as well as the support of ‘Innovation projects’.
Call for Innovation Projects (open) | Partnering Platform for Innovation Projects || Call for S&T Projects (closed)


Call for Innovation Projects

Now open!

Call opening:  20 July 2017 | Call closing: 19 September 2017 | 15.00 CEST

The goal of the call will be to create a long-term research collaboration in the field of innovation between EU Member States/Associated Countries and Russia. Innovative research collaboration of a high standard between teams from EU Member States and/or Associated Countries and Russia will be supported through an open competition.

EU-Russia collaborative innovation projects can be funded in research areas thematically assigned to innovative technologies of high utilisation and with a high market potential and of particular importance for the EU as well as for Russia.

By innovation projects are meant joint R&D projects designed to lead to innovative products, services or processes of significant economic and/or societal value. Compared to the rather advanced cooperation between the EU and Russia in the field of basic research, the cooperation in the field of innovation still bears a lot of potential to be exploited. Against this background this joint activity shall also address applied research and technology development implemented by small sized innovative research performing enterprises in Russia in partnership with universities and/or non-university public or private research performing institutions/companies from EU.
