M-ERA.NET is a European network of public funding organisations and funding programmes which has been established to coordinate their efforts in supporting and developing a strong European RTD community on Materials Science and Engineering, for the benefit of the European industry and society. M-ERA.NET will support the whole chain ranging from the most fundamental research to applied research and innovation. It gathers 33 public funding agencies and funding programmes from 25 countries. It aims as well to the opening up to countries outside the European area and to the setting up of international cooperative programmes.
In 2013, ANR will focus on the following research area: ‘Integrated Computational Materials Engineering’. Only projects dealing with this topic will be considered for review.
The appelsprojetsrecherche.fr portal centralises all information on calls for proposals and calls for applications from ADEME, ANR, Inserm including ANRS, Anses and INCa. It provides a simplified access to upcoming and ongoing calls, giving a greater visibility to funding opportunities. Following their closing date, the calls remain published for a few months.
