FLAG-ERA gathers National and Regional Funding Organisations (NRFOs) in Europe and beyond with the goal of supporting the FET Flagship initiatives, i.e., the Graphene Flagship and the Human Brain Project (HBP) Flagship. One of its main aims is to allow researchers to complement the current Flagship projects and to collaborate towards the achievement of their vision through the use of existing or dedicated transnational, national and regional calls.
The FLAG-ERA Joint Transnational Call (JTC) 2017 is designed to expand the current Flagships with new research contributing to the Flagship objectives in selected areas. New researchers and researchers already in the Flagships are equally eligible. Selected projects are expected to be integrated in the Flagships as Partnering Projects.
The call comprises two topics, one for each Flagship.
- The Graphene part of the call is sub-divided into two sub-calls, one for basic research and one for applied research and innovation.
The Human Brain Project part of the call addresses both basic and applied research and consists of one sub-call.
The official Call Announcement and all other relevant documents are available via this link.
