Updated Policy Brief on the Impacts of Networks 2016

ERA-LEARN 2020 conducted two large scale surveys in 2016 in order to capture the overall experience of participating in ERA-NETs (covering all the different versions of the scheme over the years). The results are presented in the "Updated Report on the Impacts of Networks 2016" which can be downloaded here. Overall, the ERA-NET scheme has managed to gather a critical mass of resources and establish durable cooperation among countries around certain societal challenges and research topics. However, more efforts are need at the national level for the scheme to realise its full potential. To achieve their ultimate goal, ERA-NETs need to focus on excellence, but at the same time, they need to pursue objectives beyond that, by increasing efforts to attract policy attention and support primarily at the national level so that they become influential actors at the European / international arena.
