Calls for projects 2016

Call HP-ERN-2016: European Reference Networks / Framework Partnership Agreements

The call is based on the Third Programme for the Union's action in the field of Health (2014-2020) and the Annual Work Programme 2016.

The 2016 work plan sets out details of the financing mechanisms and priority areas for action to implement the Programme.

The objective of this call is to provide financial support to the approved European reference networks (ERNs), once established.

Support will be provided through the signature of Framework Partnership Agreements (FPA), for a duration of maximum five years, from 2017 to 2021.  

The FPA will encompass a multi-annual work plan for the period 2017-2021, including a general budget plan.

FPA beneficiaries are subsequently eligible for Specific Grant Agreements (SGA).

European Reference Networks (ERNs) who have signed FPA may submit a simplified application for co-funding through a Specific Grant Agreements (proposal for SGA).

However signing an FPA does not guarantee annual co-funding through SGA.

This call for FPA is combined with the call for interest to establish European Reference Network.

Deadline 21 June 2016
