The following provides some examples of monitoring and assessment reports that have been produced by several mature P2P networks.  We welcome additional examples from other networks to support mutual learning.

ARTICLE 185 on METROLOGY (EMRP/EMPIR)

The Article 185 on Metrology was originally established under FP7 as the ‘European Metrology Research Programme (EMRP)’ and continues as the ‘European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR)’ under Horizon 2020.  Annual calls on various topics (e.g. industry, energy, environment, health) have been launched every year since 2009.  Monitoring and assessment of Joint Research Projects is an important activity.  Project-specific data is collected using a cumulative ‘Output and Impact Report’ and case study reports have been published at both the project and thematic level.

BiodivERsA

This ERA-NET on biodiversity and ecosystem services has been active since 2005 and has launched six joint calls since 2008.  The current phase is supported through a Horizon 2020 ERA-NET Cofund Action.  It has carried out an evaluation to assess the extent to which projects funded by BiodivERsA are able to effectively deliver high-profile academic products, while fruitfully engaging with relevant stakeholders and delivering a range of  society-relevant products.

ICT-AGRI

The ICT-AGRI network is concerned with enabling precision farming by means of ICT and robotics.  It was originally established in 2009 as an ERA-NET Coordination Action under FP7.  The follow on ICT-AGRI-2 project started in 2014 and will continue until 2017.  In 2015, the consortium developed an impact model to assess the achievements of the funded projects, and of the funding initiative itself, and also an online questionnaire to collect data from applicants.

MANUNET

MANUNET was originally established in 2006 as an ERA-NET Coordination Action under FP6, in the field of Manufacturing.  During the 2nd phase of the network (MANUNET II) the consortium carried out an impact assessment of its annual joint calls from 2007 to 2015.

M-ERA.NET

The FP7 ERA-NET Coordination Action on materials science and engineering (M-ERA.NET) commenced in 2012 and built on two previous ERA-NET projects: MATERA and MNT-ERA.NET.  Continuous assessment of the network and funded projects is an important feature if this network and a number of reports have been produced.  An independent final assessment of M-ERA.NET was also completed in February 2016.  

The network continues as an ERA-NET Cofund Action (known as M-ERA.NET 2) since the beginning of 2016.
