ERA-NET Cofunds

About ERA-NET Cofunds

ERA-NET Cofund is a mechanism within Horizon 2020, the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (for the period until 2025), providing opportunities to funding organisations from individual EU Member States (such as TA CR), associated countries and mostly also some
non-European countries to launch joint international calls for proposals under some agreed theme. Applicants submit project proposals involving international consortia, with each funding organisation financing successful applicants from its own country which take part in projects selected within these international calls. A list of funding organisations taking part in a given call is usually published before the call is launched. At present,
TA CR as a funding organisation participates in ERA-NET cofund calls in the fields of nanomedicine, biodiversity and climate, water pollution, ICST, non-agricultural raw materials, innovative materials, and gender in the content of research and innovation. At the same time, actions are being prepared under other themes such as transport or energy. TA CR allocation for individual ERA-NET Cofund calls varies in size, but often amounts to approximately EUR 1 million, with a maximum funding rate of 70 – 100% of eligible project costs for the Czech part of the project.
