News archive - SEE-ERA.NET Project Publishes Results of its "Pilot Joint Call"

The Southeast European Era-Net SEE-ERA.NET has published a booklet on the Scientific results of its Pilot Joint Call, a pilot case for the cooperation of the project partner countries in the field of research funding. 

It consists of 27 individual scientific reports on the funded research and networking projects as well as summer schools, along with a general overview on the project and a foreword by the European Commissioner for Science and Research, Janez Potočnik.

SEE-ERA.NET has started as a regional ERA-NET, implemented by the national key stakeholders in fourteen European countries, including EU member states and all Western Balkan countries (WBC). The project  has created a strong commitment among the participating countries towards supporting multilateral research cooperation through a Pilot Joint Call (PJC) which was launched in 2006. All the 14 countries from the SEE-ERA. NET project participated with national contributions in the funding of the call and around 160 research teams from all participating countries in 31 selected projects have received funding for cross-national research and networking.

In the frame of this Pilot Joint Call, 321 eligible proposals involving 1437 research teams have been submitted. It is to note that among them 739 teams have come from the Western Balkan countries. This clearly proves both the need for cooperation and the scientific potential of those countries to successfully participate in multilateral and international science and technology (S&T) cooperation.
