International cooperation > European Research Area
Strong institutional cooperation
ANR cooperates with the European Commission in the context of Horizon 2020, the EC's framework programme for research and development.
It is a member of Science Europe, the European association promoting the collective interests of the research funding and research performing organisations in Europe and a strong contributor to the European Research Area. ANR's CEO, Michael Matlosz, participates in the Governing Board of the association.
Coordination of the FET NCP
To reinforce the participation of French researchers in European projects, the Ministry for Higher Education and Research has set up a new network of "National Contact Points" (NCP). Comprising experts in the European programmes, the NCPs are consortiums tasked with assisting the French project principal investigators in responding to the Horizon 2020 calls for proposals on given themes. ANR has been assigned responsibility for coordinating the "PCN FET" which concerns future and emerging technologies. This falls into the continuity of the coordination activities engaged by ANR within the FLAG-ERA ERA-NET, a European initiative focusing on highly innovative research projects: the European Commission's "FET Flagship" projects.
Active participation in European multilateral programmes
ANR participates, alongside European counterpart agencies, in the calls for proposals launched in the context of the European instruments, such as ERA-NETs, Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) or articles 185.
It is a member of about twenty ERA-NETs, including five as a coordinator:
The agency is also member of the AAL 185 association dedicated to ambient assisted living.
It participates in the Trans-Atlantic Platform and the EU-India Platform (Equip) for the Social Sciences and Humanities.
Finally, ANR is a member of eight among ten Joint Programming Initiatives.
