ERA CoBioTech


The ERA-Net Cofund on Biotechnologies is a new ERA Net Cofund Action under Horizon 2020 that will build upon the achievements of ERA-IB-2 (ERA-Net for Industrial Biotechnology 2), ERASysAPP (ERA-Net for Applied Systems Biology) and ERASynBio (ERA-Net for Synthetic Biology).

ERA CoBioTech brings together 21 funding organisations from 18 countries and was started with the launch of a cofunded call for transnational R&D proposals on 01.12.2016.

The key mission of ERA CoBiotech is to:

  • maximise synergies between current mechanisms of biotechnology research funding in Europe,
  • foster the exchange of knowledge across borders,
  • highlight the benefits of a bio-based economy for society,
  • maintain and strengthen Europe’s position in biotechnology.

Next to the cofunded call additional activities are planned:

  • additional joint calls
  • developing a Strategic Innovation and ResearchAgenda for ERA CoBioTech
  • Establishment of European Biotechnology Hub

In ERA CoBioTech, FNR is responsible for the preparation of the cofunded call and is further majorly involved in the organization of status seminars for the funded projects and training Workshops for the Biotechnology Hub stakeholders.

Joint cofunded Call „Biotechnology for a sustainable bioeconomy“

The cofounded call „Biotechnology for a sustainable bioeconomy“raised a greath awareness by the academia and industry in the biotechnology domain and  was closed on 02.03.2017 13:00 (CET).
