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 current 3rd Joint Call is a cooperation of the involved funding parties independent of additional EU funding.
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. 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...
