3rd MarTERA call for projects on maritime and marine technologies

The overall goal of the ERA-NET Cofund MarTERA is to strengthen the European Research Area (ERA) in maritime and marine technologies as well as Blue Growth. Research and innovation activities in these fields cannot be tackled either at national levels alone, or solely by a single sector. MarTERA is a network of 18 ministries, authorities and funding organisations responsible for funding research and innovation projects in maritime and marine technologies from 15 countries. The consortium of the ERA-NET Cofund MarTERA launches a second joint call for transnational research and innovation projects on different thematic priority areas. The participating countries in the Call 2019 (Belarus, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Malta, Norway, Poland, Romania, Spain and Turkey) are supporting the following maritime and marine technology areas:

  • Priority Area 1: Environmentally friendly maritime technologies
  • Priority Area 2: Innovative concepts for ships and offshore structures
  • Priority Area 3: Automation, sensors, monitoring and observations
  • Priority Area 4: Advanced manufacturing and production
  • Priority Area 5: Safety and security

ANR supports only the Priority Area 3: Automation, sensors, monitoring and observations. Proposals involving French partners must focus on the Priority Area 3, among the subtopics:

  • Intelligent predictive maintenance systems;
  • Sensor development;
  • Underwater technology.

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 “Appendix for french participants” available on this webpage.
