Second transnational call for research projects from ERA CoBioTech

The ERA-Net Cofund on Biotechnologies is a new ERA Net Cofund Action under Horizon 2020 that will build upon the achievements of ERA-IB2 (ERA-Net for Industrial Biotechnology 2), ERASysAPP (ERA-Net for Applied Systems Biology) and ERASynBio (ERA-Net for Synthetic Biology).
ERA CoBioTech launches the 2nd transnational call for research projects in the field of biotechnologies.
The second transnational joint call for research projects within the framework of ERA CoBioTech aims to contribute to the transformation of the global economy from a dependence on fossil raw materials to a sustainable bio-based economy. Funding will be granted for a maximum of three years according to national regulations.
Research projects must be multidisciplinary and will need to address one of the following topics:
Topic A – Microbial communities (natural or synthetic), co-cultures and cascades of microorganisms for new products, value-added products and supply services and sustainable industrial processes
Topic B – Pure cultures, cell free systems and enzymes for new products, value-added products and supply services and sustainable industrial processes
Timeline
• full proposal submission: the submission deadline for proposals will be on December 14th, 2018.
• Funding decision: research consortia will be informed on the funding decision in June/July 2019.
• project start: research projects are expected to start from September 2019 on (depending on grant negotiations with the relevant regional or national funding organisations).
