The ANR joins the ERA-NET ERASynBio to launch a first joint call for proposals to fund transnational research projects on Synthetic Biology.
Thirteen countries are joining this call: Austria, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Latvia, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland, United Kingdom and United States of America.
Important notice: Finally the Netherlands decided not to participate in the first ERASynBio call for proposals.
This joint call for proposals aims to encourage interdisciplinary collaborations and to establish and strengthen the scientific community in Synthetic Biology.
Proposals may address any of the following subfields, which are equal in relevance for this call:
The projects must show a clear added value in funding the transnational collaboration. Each consortium submitting a proposal must involve a minimum of three research groups from three different European countries of funding organisations participating in this call (see list above).
Funding will be awarded for a maximum of three years. The ANR will fund only the French partners in the selected projects.
The specific appendix for French partners is available on this site. The call text, proposal template, and guidelines for applicants are available both on this site and on www.erasynbio.eu
Electronic proposal submission is mandatory on: https://www.pt-it.de/ptoutline/application/ERASYNBIO1
No proposal submission will be accepted directly at ANR.
