In the frame of the ERA.Net RUS project a Pilot Joint Call on Collaborative S&T Projects was launched on 16 March 2011 and applicants are invited to submit online proposals until 31 May 2011. 
    

The participating countries were: Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Norway, Poland, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, and Turkey. Project consortia must comprise project partners from at least 3 different countries, of which at least one from Russia. These project partners must be eligible for funding by their respective national Funding Party which are members of the Group of Funding Parties. Applicants non-eligible for funding could join any consortium submitting a proposal in the context of this PJC, however on their own expenses.

The term Collaborative S&T Project was defined as 'a joint undertaking by a partnership of institutions (consortium) designed to produce new knowledge through fundamental, experimental and/or theoretical scientific research, whereby each team of the partnership actively pursues specific objectives with a view to pooling the results to contribute to common, well-defined objectives'. The goal of the PJC/STP was to create long-term research collaboration between EU MS/AC and Russia. Research collaboration of a high standard between teams from EU Member States and/or Associated Countries and Russia was supported through open competition.

The duration of a project could be up to 24 months. The total indicative financial contribution of the call was € 5.930.000 plus an additional amount from INTAS donations. For funding contributions of each funding organisation and eligible costs please refer to the Terms of References and its Annex with internal eligibility criteria/ national rules of the funding parties.
