Cooperation in innovation, research and development is a key dimension in the relations between the European Union and Russia. In this context the 28 consortium members of ERA.Net RUS Plus implemented 2 Joint Calls for transnational and scientifically excellent research projects in 2014 and 2017. Both were execeptionally successful. In 2018, the European Comission decided to extend the project period of ERA.Net RUS Plus until October 2019.
The ERA.Net RUS Plus Group of Funding Parties 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 Calls 2014/2015. The ERA.Net RUS Plus became not only the largest geographical ERA.NET, but also a flagship and leading initiative in the EU-Russia science cooperation. Learn more...
In April 2018, the funding organisations of the ERA.Net RUS Plus Call 2017 selected 7 'Innovation' projects for funding with a financial volume of EUR 3 million. With the 28 projects for 'Science & Technology' selected in November 2017, in total 35 joint research projects will be carried out between 2018 and 2021 with a total funding volume of EUR 14 million.

After an extension of its project period by the European Comission, ERA.Net RUS Plus will now run until October 2019. The praticipating research and innovation funding organisations wish to continue this joint initiative by launching another call round in order to sustain and extend the human scientific bridge between the EU and Russia. If and how this will come into fruition is yet to be decided.
