FLAG-ERA (the Flagship ERA-Net) gathers national and regional Funding Organisations in Europe and beyond with the goal of supporting the FET (Future Emerging Technologies) Flagships selected by the European Commission in 2013, “Graphene” and “Human Brain Project”. One of its main aims is to allow researchers to complement the Flagships with additional projects funded through existing or dedicated transnational, national and regional calls. In total, the FLAG-ERA Consortium counts currently 39 funding agencies from 26 countries in Europe and beyond (22 full members + 17 associate members). The DFG is a full member in FLAG-ERA and participates in the work packages supporting the Graphene Flagship.
FLAG-ERA has issued joint calls for transnational research projects in 2015, 2106 and 2017. Within these calls, 42 joint projects were selected for funding, 16 with DFG participation. The ongoing call (JTC 2019) is currently in its final decision stage.
More details and information about the calls can be found on the FLAG-ERA webpage:
