The BLUEMED initiative, Blue Growth research and Innovation Initiative for the Mediterranean - BLUEMED Initiative, is the result of the efforts of 9 EU member states bordering the Mediterranean sea, to foster a sustainable blue growth in the Mediterranean sea area. Its final goal is to contribute to align or integrate the funding strategies, R&I funds and infrastructures at regional, national and EU level, by avoiding duplication, improving the effectiveness in the use of resources and maximizing the leverage effects. BLUEMED represents a good practice of alignment at strategic level, involving from one side the EU Mediterranean Countries, who committed at political level to adopt common research priorities and strategic agenda, and from the other side, the European Commission DG RTD and MARE, which facilitated and supported the process.

The DACH Agreement is an instrument of cross-border collaboration, signed in May 2008 between the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) and its partner organisations, the FWF (Austrian Science Fund, Austria) and the SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation, Switzerland). It relates to the mutual opening of the respective funding programmes with the objective to simplify the execution of cross-border research projects. Simplification is achieved by making one of the funding agencies the only responsible of the evaluation process of the transnational projects ("Lead Agency" process). In particular, the DACH Agreement – and the related “Lead Agency Procedure” – is a concrete and successful example of cooperation at trans-regional level, which represents a good practice in implementing inter-operability and creates the basis for an alignment at operational level.

HERA is a transnational network of 25 national research funding organisations in the field of humanities, which has been established thanks to the ERA-NET scheme (European Research Area Networks), that is co-funded by the EC and facilitates the launch of joint calls for project proposals. This 15 year old network has provided an effective framework for trust-building and mutual learning amongst partners, coordination of national research funding strategies and pooling of resources at the European level in order to fund new research activities.

CoEN is an alliance that facilitates institutional cooperation amongst national Centres of Excellence (research performing organisations) by enabling the launch of transnational calls for project proposals in the field of degenerative diseases. It brings together organisations from nine European and non-European countries, including large nationally mandated Centres of Excellence that have call funding resources as well as national funding organisations that provide funding to recognised Centres of Excellence if the latter have no funding capabilities. By enhancing collaboration and alignment between some of the most influential national research centres working in neurodegeneration across Europe and beyond and by focusing on high risk/high impact research, CoEN has facilitated the implementation of high quality transnational research with strong added value and complementarities with existing research programmes and networks.

Publisher: ERA-LEARN

OpenAIRE is a support platform that promotes Open Access (OA) to research outputs across 33 countries from Europe and beyond.

OpenAIRE is a support platform that promotes Open Access (OA) to research outputs across 33 countries from Europe and beyond. It provides a technical infrastructure that includes an online platform and associated services in order to centralise, harmonise, disseminate and interlink open research data. The initiative also facilitates the coordination of national and transnational OA activities through a network of national experts in order to promote open access, disseminate related best practices and support countries and research institutes in developing and aligning OA policies and infrastructures. OpenAIRE has enhanced transparency and awareness of past and current research activities and related outputs and outcomes at the level of researchers, end-users and policy-makers. This has contributed to avoiding unnecessary duplication of research efforts, fostering re-use of research data by scientists, increasing return on investment and supporting efficient progress of research.

Toolbox of current and novel alignment modalities

Last Change: 09/10/2017
Publisher: ERA-LEARN

This practical “toolbox” synthesizes the lessons learned from the case studies that examine current and novel alignment modalities.

This practical “toolbox” synthesizes the lessons learned from the case studies that examine current and novel alignment modalities. It describes specific alignment actions or instruments in practical terms, the key benefits and weaknesses of such an action, and the success factors necessary to ensure effective implementation and impact.

There are a variety of actions and instruments currently in use in Europe that promote and facilitate the practical implementation of alignment of national research and innovation strategies, activities, and resources. Such joint actions can in fact occur at any stage of the research and innovation programming cycle. The consolidated “Alignment Typology” identifies 29 alignment actions and instruments currently in use by various European public-to-public research partnerships along the entire research and innovation programming cycle. This report provides information about the possible use, benefits, challenges, and key factors of successful implementation for each of the 29 actions identified in the Typology table.

ERA-LEARN 2020 conducted two large scale surveys in 2016 in order to capture the overall experience of participating in ERA-NETs (covering all the different versions of the scheme over the years). The results are presented in the "Updated Report on the Impacts of Networks 2016" which can be downloaded here. Overall, the ERA-NET scheme has managed to gather a critical mass of resources and establish durable cooperation among countries around certain societal challenges and research topics. However, more efforts are need at the national level for the scheme to realise its full potential. To achieve their ultimate goal, ERA-NETs need to focus on excellence, but at the same time, they need to pursue objectives beyond that, by increasing efforts to attract policy attention and support primarily at the national level so that they become influential actors at the European / international arena.
