ANR's Work Programme comes under the framework fixed by the "France Europe 2020" Strategic Agenda and the National research strategy, which are linked to the European research programme, Horizon 2020. The Work Programme 2015 takes into account the priorities set by "France Europe 2020" as well as the contributions from the national thematic Alliances – Allenvi, Allistene, Ancre, Athena, Aviesan –, from the CNRS and from the relevant ministries (Research and Higher education, Agriculture, Ecology, Health, Industry, Defence, Foreign affairs, Culture, National education).
The Work Programme comprises four interlinked components, each with a specific budget and governance:
The "major societal challenges" component takes up the nine challenges identified in the "France Europe 2020" strategic agenda.
ANR has designed and deployed a range of funding instruments to satisfy both the public policy for research and innovation in France and the project-based funding needs of the research communities.
Three types of instrument are available:
All of the available funding instruments are described in the Work Programme 2015. Each of these instruments meets a clearly identified end-purpose.
As in 2014, a large part of the Work Programme is treated as a generic call for proposals open until 16 October 2014, 1 pm (Paris time). It will be supplemented by specific calls for proposals corresponding to particular funding instruments (ERA-NETs, JPIs, LabCom, Hosting high-level researchers…).
