7th Joint Call
Status quo of the 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 the submission of 37 full proposals. Unlike the previous six calls, this call has only one submission phase for proposals. The submitted projects will first be subject to an eligibility check, following which they will be evaluated in May. The projects awarded grants are expected to start by the end of this year or at the beginning of next year.
Submission of full proposals closed on 1 February 2016 (13:00 CET). Projects are expected to start in late 2016.
