Thematic areas

ERA-NET Cofund Calls

  • 106 ERA-NET Cofund calls closed by the end of 2019 (since 2015), with 32 of these being implemented in the area of “Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing”. 15% of Cofund calls were in the area of “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials” and 14% were related to “Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy”.
  • No ERA-NET Cofund calls related to “Space” have been launched and only two calls in each of the areas of “Cross-Cutting Activities” and “Information and Communications Technologies” were opened.
  • The “Health” area, once again, dominated in 2019, with eight calls closing. During the year 2019, the area of “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials” had four calls close, with the areas of “Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing and Biotechnology”, “Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy” and “Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine and Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy” each having three calls implemented by networks operating in these fields.

2019 Calls for all Networks

  • The calls that closed in 2019, across all network types, covered most thematic areas. “Space” and “Smart, Green and Integrated Transport” were not represented in the 2019 calls.
  • “Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing” was the most represented thematic area, with 38% of calls being implemented in this area (this figure is skewed somewhat due to the one network, EDCTP, launching a number of calls during the year).
  • More than 17% of all calls were related to “Food Security, Sustainable Agriculture and Forestry, Marine and Maritime and Inland Water Research and the Bioeconomy”.
  • Only one call was launched in 2019 in the area related to “Information and Communication Technologies”, with two call being implemented in each of “Future and Emerging Technologies” and “Europe in a Changing World”.
