The ERA.Net RUS Plus initiative, which will run from November 2013 to October 2018, aims at enhancing the coordination of research programmes between the EU Member States (MS)/ Associated Countries (AC) and Russia. The project will implement Joint Calls for excellent transnational research projects in the fields of NMP, Health, Environment, SSH and Innovation. ERA.Net RUS Plus is a follow-up to the previous ERA.Net RUS action that was set up from 2009 to 2013 to link Russia to the European Research Area. ERA.Net RUS was the first joint call activity in which prominent Russian Funding Parties participated in a multilateral funding scheme.
Funded Projects 2015: 'Innovation' and 'Science & Technology'
The ERA.Net RUS Plus Group of Funding Parties (GFP) has selected 18 projects for 'Innovation' and 45 projects for 'Science & Technology' with a national financial volume of EUR 20 million for funding including a topping-up from the EU of EUR 3.5 million.
The Joint Call Secretariat (JCS) received almost 300 project proposals, a huge response to the Joint Call. The ERA.Net RUS Plus has become not only the largest geographical ERA.NET, but also a flagship and leading initiative in the EU-Russia science cooperation. The initiative will thus enhance the significance of the EU-Russian partnership and help to reach a new strategic level in science cooperation.Lists of funded projects:
