Additional joint calls
ERA-NET Cofund: 1 cofunded call with EC top-up funding is mandatory. In addition the networks can always decide to implement further joint calls without EC top-up funding.
These calls are among the most frequently implemented joint activities.
A list of calls launched by P2Ps is presented in the ERA-LEARN Call calendar. The Manual for call implementation describes the phases of any joint call, including specific rules for EC cofunded calls. These specific rules do not apply for calls without EC top-up funding.
Example JPND annual calls
JPND is implementing the priorities identified in its research strategy through a range of large-scale programmatic initiatives. JPND intends to launch Calls for proposals each year to address high priority areas in neurodegenerative disease research. Since 2011, it has launched 7 calls for proposals that were not cofounded by the European Commission. The six first calls have enabled the pooling of 60 M€ across member countries.
Example FACCE JPI Joint Calls
The BiodivERsA ERA-Net and the FACCE-JPI have joined efforts to organise and fund a pan-European call for research projects on “Promoting synergies and reducing trade-offs between food supply, biodiversity and ecosystem services” (November 2013).
FACCE JPI launched in January 2013 an international multi-partner call on agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) research bringing together 11 countries of FACCE – JPI as well as Canada, New Zealand and the United States.
