MarTERA ERA-NET Cofund on marine technologies launches call of 30 million Euro

MarTERA, resulting from the collaboration between JPI Oceans and former ERA-NET MARTEC, opens a joint call for transnational research and innovation projects on marine and maritime technologies. 

This call is initiated by 18 funding organisations of the former ERA-NET MARTEC consortium and JPI Oceans members from 16 countries/regions:
 
  • EU Member States countries/regions: Belgium-Flanders, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania and Spain;
  • EU associated countries: Norway and Turkey
  • Third countries: Argentina, Belarus and South Africa.


The Call 2017 will be implemented as a two-step procedure (a pre-proposal and a full-proposal step). The deadline for the pre-proposals is 31.03.2017. After submission of the pre-proposals via the MarTERA web page, the proposals will be assessed for eligibility and selected for the step 2. The project coordinator of an applying research consortium has to submit the pre-proposal on behalf of the consortium. In Step 2 full proposal by the applying consortium must be submitted.

The 16 countries support following maritime and marine technology areas:
 
  • Priority Area 1: Environmentally friendly maritime technologies
  • Priority Area 2: Development of novel materials and structures
  • Priority Area 3: Sensors, automation, monitoring and observations
  • Priority Area 4: Advanced manufacturing and production
  • Priority Area 5: Safety and security


Financial support for the projects will be awarded by the national/regional funding organisations according to the national/regional guidelines. Only projects, which receive funds from at least two countries, will be supported.

MarTERA organised a brokerage event on 15 February. The event presented the MarTERA Call on maritime and marine technologies and allowed participants to network and identify partners to apply for the call. 

The MarTERA ERA-NET Cofund has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 728053-MarTERA.
