International cooperation > European cooperation and ERA-NETs
On a strategic level, the agency contributes actively to the construction of the European Research Area and cooperates with the European Commission in the context of FP7. ANR’s programme managers participate in the discussions of the national thematic groups (GTN) and therefore play a role in the programming process at the European level.
The ANR is France’s representative in the ‘Ideas’ Committee of the European Research Council (ERC). It has also been a member of the EUROHORCS association since 2006 and of the European Science Foundation (ESF) since 2007.
The ANR has participated in multilateral ‘ERA-Net’ initiatives since 2006. The agency is also member of the AAL 185 consortium and participated in all AAL calls concerning the field of ambient assisted living.
Since 2006, the ANR has funded 181 projects in the framework of 17 ERA-Nets, for a total sum of €51 M.
The agency is coordinating the activities of CHIST-ERA, a consortium of eleven research funding organisations in Europe, working on long-term challenges in ICT. CHIST-ERA covers a broader spectrum than the FP6 ERA-Net initiatives. The first call was launched in Autumn 2010.
The ANR also participates in the Joint Programming Initiatives (JPI) of the European Commission.
Moreover, the agency implements specific bi- or multi-lateral joint calls with European partner agencies, and opens some of its national programmes to European agencies, in the framework of international agreements.
