M-ERA.NET

From materials science and engineering to innovation for Europe.

Basic Information

Description

M-ERA.NET is an EU funded project which has been established to support and increase the coordination of international funding and research programmes in materials science and engineering. Between 2012 and 2016, the M-ERA.NET consortium, which comprises 37 funding organisations from 25 European countries, will replace a number of smaller ERANETs with a single innovative and flexible ERA-NET. This will provide the European RTD community with access to world leading knowledge and funding programmes across a number of EU member states. The consortium will provide a central forum where substantial pan-European funding and research programmes can be aligned. M-ERA.NET will complement existing instruments and contribute to EU policies whilst supporting the exploitation of knowledge along the whole innovation chain from basic research to applied research and innovation. The M-ERA.NET consortium aims to address societal and technological needs with an interdisciplinary approach, creating an umbrella structure to allow flexible coverage of topics in materials science and engineering. By stimulating the scientific excellence and creation of a new innovation oriented economy, M-ERA.NET will provide a network which delivers lasting impact and significant breakthroughs.
