Find out more on European Research Area Networks of the 6th and 7th Framework Programmes

Strategic Programming between Member States in the form of Joint Programming activities in the areas of agriculture, forestry, fisheries, aquaculture and bio-based industries - the sectors that make up the bioeconomy - is one of the strongest in Europe in terms of national research programme coordination. In this respect, a robust network of Member States coordination activities aimed at increasing research collaboration between funders and programme managers on key research areas has been developed over the past ten years.

Within this cooperative landscape, ERA-NET ACTIONS (ERA-NETs) are recognised as a success story of the 6th and the 7th Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development (RTD).
They have contributed to the realisation of the European Research Area (ERA) by improving the networking of funding authorities and the mutual opening of research programmes conducted at national or regional level.

This publication will provide you with factual information on all ERA-NET and ERA-NET+ projects supported by the KBBE theme of FP7 as well as related ERA-NET predecessors funded under FP6.
