Thematic areas

ERA-NET Cofund Calls:

  • 106 ERA-NET Cofund calls closed by the end of 2018 (since 2015), with 32 of these being implemented in the area of “Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing”.  16% of Cofund calls were related to “Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy” and 14% were in the area of “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials”.
  • 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 also dominated in 2018, with seven calls closing.  During the year 2018, the areas of “Climate Action, Environment, Resource Efficiency and Raw Materials” as well as “Nanotechnologies, Advanced Materials, Advanced Manufacturing and Processing and Biotechnology” each had four calls implemented by networks operating in these fields.


2018 calls for all network types:

  • The calls that closed in 2018, across all network types, covered all thematic areas except “Space”.
  • “Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing” was the most represented thematic area, with 42% 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 “Cross-Cutting Activities”.
  • Only one call was launched in 2018 in each of the areas related to “Information and Communication Technologies”, “Smart, Green and Integrated Transport” and “Europe in a Changing World”.
