First transnational call for research projects

Aim of the call

The first transnational joint call for research projects within the framework of ERA-MarineBiotech aimed to stimulate joint European research and development activities in marine biotechnology. Collaborative projects related to “The development of biorefinery processes for marine bioresources” included researchers from the academic and the industrial sector.

Funding was granted for a maximum of three years according to national regulations.

Timeline

Submissions of proposals were in two steps:

  • a pre-proposal step with submission deadline by December 10, 2014, and
  • a full proposal step for invited consortia with submission deadline by April 30, 2015.
