7th Joint Call

In November 2015, the 7th and last transnational joint call for multilateral research projects using Industrial Biotechnology (IB) was launched by ERA-IB-2. This joint call was organized in collaboration with ERASynBio and ERA-NET Marine Biotechnology (ERA-MBT). ERASynBio is a self-sustainable initiative of international funding agencies, working together to promote the robust development of Synthetic Biology and to structure and coordinate national efforts and funding programs. ERA-MBT is a joint initiative for Marine Biotechnology-based research.

This call has resulted in 9 granted projected out of 37 submitted full proposals. Unlike the previous six calls, this call has only one submission phase for proposals. The projects awarded grants are expected to start by the end of this year or at the beginning of next year.
