What is an ERA-NET?
As a network of funding agencies and research bodies, the objective of ERA-NETs is to develop and strengthen coordination between national research programmes, thereby aiding in the construction of the European Research Area. Research organisations pool their human and financial resources in the interests of joint activities, e.g. by launching calls aimed at funding international research projects.
