Selected – 2020

10th Call of the CHIST-ERA ERA-NET

The ANR participates in the 10th call of the CHIST-ERA ERA-NET consortium (European coordinated research on long-term ICT and ICT-based scientific Challenges) bringing together 25 countries, with a budget of 16M€. The call announcement can be found under Call 2019 on the official CHIST-ERA website: 

In this call, two new and emerging topics of ICST domain are addressed, namely:

  1. Explainable Machine Learning-based Artificial Intelligence (XAI)
  2. Novel Computational Approaches for Environmental Sustainability (CES)

The aim of the call is to support highly innovative, international and multidisciplinary transformative research projects in ICST domain with potential for significant scientific and technological impacts.

A two-step submission process applies. Applicants are invited to submit a short proposal and, if selected in the first step, to submit a full proposal. At both stages of the application, the coordinator prepares a joint proposal (short proposal or full proposal), in English, for the whole consortium, using the template available on and submit it via the online submission system of CHIST-ERA.

Interested researchers are invited to start discussing possible projects with prospective partners and to use the Partner Search Tool available on the call page, and/or to publish an expression of interest on that tool.

For projects selected for funding, each partner of the consortium will be funded directly by its respective national funding organisation. Therefore, all national regulations apply. In particular, the French applicants must read the document entitled “Modalités de participation pour les Partenaires sollicitant une aide de l’ANR” available on this page.
