Joint Calls 2014/2015

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 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. Fields supported for 'S&T projects' were Nanotechnologies/Materials/Production Technologies, Health, Environment/Climate Change, and Social Sciences/Humanities. Detailed information about the ERA.Net RUS Plus Call 2017 will be published soon.

Joint Call for Innovation Projects

Call opened: 31 March 2014 | Call closed: 28 May 2014

The 2nd round (submission of full proposals) ended on 2 December 2014.

The goal of the call was 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 were supported through an open competition.

EU-Russia collaborative innovation projects can be funded in research areas thematically assigned to innovative technologies of high utiliza-tion 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 econo-mic and/or societal value. Compared to the rather advanced cooperation between the EU and Russia in the field of basic research, the coop-eration 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.
