Joint Call

ERA CoBioTech “Biotechnology for a sustainable bioeconomy”

The ERA-Net Cofund on Biotechnologies is a new ERA-Net Cofund Action under Horizon 2020 that will build upon the achievements of ERA-IB2 (ERA-Net for Industrial Biotechnology 2), ERASysAPP (ERA-Net for Applied Systems Biology) and ERASynBio (ERA-Net for Synthetic Biology). The key mission of ERA CoBioTech is to • maximise synergies between current mechanisms of biotechnology research funding in Europe, • foster the exchange of knowledge across borders, • highlight the benefits of a bio-based economy for society, • maintain and strengthen Europe’s position in biotechnology.
