M-ERA.NET is an EU funded network which has been established to support and increase the coordination of European research programmes and related funding in materials science and engineering.

Between 2012 and 2016, the M-ERA.NET consortium will contribute to the restructuring of the European Research Area (ERA) by operating as a single innovative and flexible network of funding organisations.

 M-ERA.NET will complement existing instruments and contribute to EU policies whilst supporting the exploitation of knowledge along the whole innovation chain from basic research to applied research and innovation.

By stimulating scientific excellence and the creation of a new innovation oriented economy, M-ERA.NET will deliver lasting impact and significant breakthroughs.
It aims to develop a long-term cooperation between funding organisations across the EU.

Programme Description

M-ERA.NET started, in February 2012, as a network of 37 public funding organisations, of which 29 are national and 8 regional, from 25 European countries. M-ERA.NET aims to identify further relevant European programmes and develop links with partners outside Europe.

M-ERA.NET will provide a central forum where substantial pan-European funding and research programmes can be aligned.

The consortium aims to address societal challenges and technological needs with an interdisciplinary approach, creating a flexible umbrella structure to allow coverage of topics in materials science and engineering.

As a core activity, a series of joint calls for transnational RTD projects will be implemented.

These calls will provide the European RTD community the opportunity to access coordinated funding across Europe and gain access to leading knowledge world-wide.

Over four years, the M-ERA.NET consortium will mobilise substantial national and regional budgets in the range of €150M, to support the European RTD community.
Cooperation with partners outside Europe is targeted to build a global network of public funding programmes.

Total Budget: €150,000,000
Percentage of Subsidy/Co-Financing: The Cyprus Consortium in each project can apply for funding of up to €100,000 and the total budget for each Call is €200,000.
