Funding – 2012

Transnational call for proposals on eco-innovation within the frame of the ERA-NET ECO-INNOVERA

The ANR joins the ERA-NET ECO-INNOVERA to launch a joint transnational call for proposals.

Thirteen countries and regions are participating to this call for proposals: Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Wallonia (Belgium), Basque region (Spain), Flamish region (Belgium).

The aim of this call is to support transnational research projects on eco-innovation. These projects, in addition to their scientific excellence, should take into account environmental and socio-economic impacts with a clear vision of markets and economic sectors.

Proposals can address the three following topics:

  • Paradigm change
  • Sustainable industrial processes and products
  • Recycling

The proposals will be expected in basic research, industrial or experimental development, depending on partner countries specification (see national specifications). The proposals should be ambitious, innovative and demonstrate the international added value of the consortium.

The consortia can consist of public laboratories and private partners; the participation of SMEs is strongly encouraged.

Research proposals have to involve a minimum of 3 partners from at least 3 different countries participating in the call. Nevertheless, when a SME is involved as a partner, the consortium can be reduced to 2 partners from 2 countries participating to the call.

Funding will be awarded for a maximum of three years. The ANR will fund only the French partners in the selected projects (see national specifications). The consortium has to be public or public –private.
