Designed to improve France’s success rate in European Research Council (ERC) calls, Tremplin-ERC (T-ERC) is a funding instrument set up by ANR as part of its Work Programme 2022. T-ERC is open to all ERC research disciplines (LS, PE, SH).
The European Joint Programme SOIL started in February 2020 to create an integrated framework for agricultural soil research in Europe in order to enhance capacity, capability and knowledge in the area of soil research. The objective of this call is to foster holistic agricultural (forestry soils are not excluded) soil management practices which will assist in making a shift to diversify farming to include a variety of sustainable and environmental practices. To achieve this aim, knowledge about soil organic carbon (SOC) sequestration and biodiversity is essential. Thus, the call addresses three major topics: SOC sequestration, biodiversity and sustainable production and environment.
The aim of this program is threefold: To conduct and structure scientific research in strategic and priority areas via an effective and lasting partnership between public and private organisms.
Joint call for proposals of ERA-Nets Cofund Susfood2 and FOSC: Innovative solutions for resilient, climate-smart and sustainable food systems
The ERA-NET Cofunds Susfood2 (Sustainable Food Production and Consumption) and FOSC (Food System and Climate) launch a joint call for transnational interdisciplinary research projects on Innovative solutions for resilient, climate-smart and sustainable food systems. It is a one-step application procedure.
In the framework of ERA-NET Cofund M-era.Net, the French National Research Agency (ANR), in partnership with 50 funding agencies from 36 different countries, launches a new call for projects on materials science and engineering: M-ERA.NET 2021 (2022 edition for the ANR).
PRIMA – Partnership for Research and Innovation in the Mediterranean Area call for proposals - Section 2
PRIMA Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda identified 12 priorities for facing Mediterranean challenges related to Water management, Farming systems and Agro-food chains. In this context, ANR participates to the 2021 Section 2 joint transnational call for proposals to fund innovative research projects addressing the following 3 topics and the cross cutting issues among them:
Global technological and industrial competition requires ensuring the dual applications of research results. Therefore, all the agreements for the projects selected in this call will include IP clauses aimed essentially at subjecting to prior authorization from DGA a sale of intellectual property resulting from the work (or an exclusive concession license) to preserve the feasibility of these applications. More generally, DGA wishes to promote the development of innovations and makes available to project leaders a network of technical experts with knowledge of the industrial environment.
The European Interest Group (EIG) CONCERT-Japan is an international joint initiative aiming at support and enhance science, technology and innovation (STI) cooperation between European countries and Japan. Former ERA-NET program from 2011 to 2014, EIG CONCERT-Japan works as an independent collaboration since 2015. Within EIG CONCERT-Japan, the French National Research Agency (ANR), together with the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) and 13 other European partners, launches the international joint research call « Sustainable Hydrogen Technology as Affordable and Clean Energy ». This call is supported by 13 agencies located in the following countries: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, Slovakia, Spain, Switzerland and Turkey.
ANR and the Trans-Atlantic Platform (T-AP) for Social Sciences and Humanities are issuing a third joint research call on Recovery, Renewal and Resilience in a Post-Pandemic World (RRR).
In the framework of the ERA-NET “Urban transformation capacities”, ANR is launching, in collaboration with 15 other partners from 13 European countries, a call for proposals, co-financed by the European Commission, to invite researchers, urban government authorities, – including cities and municipalities, – businesses, civil society and other stakeholders to build transnational consortia to create innovation and research projects that enable and support capacity building for urban transformations.
