2nd ERANet-LAC Joint Call:

ERANet-LAC 2nd Joint Call on Research and Innovation 

call opened: 1 December 2015  (15:00 CET) | call closed: 10 March 2016 (15:00 CET)

The aim of the ERANet-LAC Joint Calls was to start new, sustainable and multilateral research cooperation between researchers from Europe, Latin-America and the Caribbean countries. Within the framework of the 2nd ERANet-LAC Joint Call, transnational research and innovation projects are funded for a period of up to 36 months. 

The design of the 2nd ERANet-LAC Joint Call was of a flexible nature to ensure that a wide variety of funding institutions is able to join the Joint Call – and that as many researchers as possible from European, Latin-American and Caribbean countries were eligible for funding. For this reason, each participating funding institution applied its individual national/ regional funding regulations. Applicants were therefore asked to check the national /regional regulations of their funding organisations, before the submission of a proposal.
