About ERA.Net RUS Plus

The Partnership for Modernisation between the European Union and Russia states as one of the priority areas to enhance cooperation in innovation, research and development. In this context the 28 consortium members of ERA.Net RUS Plus propose to implement a Single Joint Call for transnational and scientifically excellent research projects in the fields of Nanotechnologies/Materials/Production Technologies, Health, Environment/Climate Change, Social Sciences/Humanities and Innovation. The national financial contributions of the partners to the Single Joint Call will sum up to approximately EUR 25 millions.
The action will engage programme owners from various EU-Member States (MS), countries associated (AC) to the EU RTD Framework Programme and Russia. ERA.Net RUS Plus is a follow-up to the current ERA.Net RUS action that was set-up from 2009 to 2013 to link Russia to the European Research Area by a coordination of S&T programmes in EU MS/AC and Russia. ERA.Net RUS was the first joint call activity in which prominent Russian Funding Parties (RAS, RFBR, RFH and FASIE) were jointly participating in a multilateral funding scheme.

  • Project Objectives

    The major objective of ERA.Net RUS Plus is to deepen the transnational collaboration between EU MS/AC and Russia and to reduce the fragmentation of research programmes along national funding lines. This joint undertaking will create synergies and strengthen the cooperation among the consortium members.

  • Project Structure

    The ERA.Net RUS Plus initiative has defined four Work Packages (WPs) to organise its activities. Each of these WPs is supervised by a Work Package leader from the ERA.Net RUS Plus consortium and all partners contribute to a set number of Tasks within the Work Packages.

  • The ERA-NET Scheme

    The objective of the ERA-NET scheme, launched in 2002 under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6), is to enhance coordination of national or regional research programmes in the Member States and Associated States. The scheme contributes significantly to the structuring of the European Research Area by favouring actions supported together by several Member States and the Commission (such as joint calls, joint programmes, etc.).
