New ERA-NET Cofund on marine technologies

The Cofund proposal resulting from the collaboration between JPI Oceans and former ERA-NET MARTEC was accepted by the European Commission and will launch a call of approximately 30 million euro in December 2016.

The new ERA-NET Cofund MarTERA will be coordinated by Filiz Aslan of Project Management Jülich (Germany). The other partners in MarTERA are: Argentina, Belarus, Belgium (Flanders), France, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, South Africa, Spain and Turkey.
 
The deadline foreseen for the signature of the grant agreement between the MarTERA partners and the European Commission is 24 September 2016. MarTERA will have a focus on innovation and technology development for a wide range of marine and maritime applications. The scope of the cofunded call can be divided in the following five priority areas: 
 
  • Environmentally friendly maritime technologies
  • Development of novel materials and structures
  • Sensors, automation, monitoring and observations
  • Advanced manufacturing and production
  • Safety and security
 
The consortium will launch the first cofunded call in December 2016. The budget for the cofunded call is approximately 30 million Euro, where the participating countries contribute with 20 million Euro and the European Commission allocates 10 million Euro. MarTERA will implement the Call 2017 as a two-step procedure (a pre-proposal and a full-proposal step). The deadline for submission of pre-proposals is planned to be end of March 2017. The consortium is committed to plan activities additional to the cofunded call, such as additional calls and other activities.
