CHIST-ERA is a coordination and co-operation activity of national and regional research funding organisations mainly in Europe and is supported by the Horizon 2020 Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) programme of the European Union through the ERA-NET Cofund funding scheme. The aim is to reinforce the transnational collaboration between the participating states in challenging multidisciplinary research in the ICT and ICT-based areas with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. On a yearly basis, the partner organisations identify emergent scientific fields allowing researchers to engage in high risk, high impact projects by launching a transnational call for research proposals.
