Dutch researchers can participate in the Human Brain Project call

6 December 2018

FLAG-ERA (the Flagship ERA-NET) publishes its third Joint Transnational Call (JTC) for collaborative research projects in synergy with the two FET Flagships. The purpose of this announcement is to enable interested parties to build their consortia and start submitting their pre-proposals. The pre-proposal deadline for the FLAG-ERA III call is set at February 19 2019.

FLAG-ERA gathers National and Regional Funding Organisations (NRFOs) in Europe and beyond with the goal of supporting, together with the European Commission, 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 using existing or dedicated transnational, national and regional calls. In particular, FLAG-ERA aims at launching dedicated JTCs allowing researchers from several countries to jointly contribute to the Flagship goals. Note that researchers interested to work in the framework of the Flagships can also do so using other sources of funding in combination with the Flagship association mechanisms.

For FLAG-ERA III, NWO together with ZonMW will financially contribute a total sum of € 750.000 to the HBP Flagship, which will translate into three grantable projects with at least one consortium partner with an affiliation in The Netherlands.
