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.

Partner Search Tool:

ERANet-LAC set up a bespoke partner search tool for potential participants in the 2nd Joint Call. Applicants could provide their profile at the Partnering Platform and also search for potential partners themselves. The Partner Search Tool was launched with the call pre-announcement on 1 November 2015 and remains open until further notice.
