ERA-NET Coordinating Action in Plant Science: 3rd call

Submission deadline


ERA-CAPS (ERA-NET Coordinating Action in Plant Science) launches its 3rd transnational call for collaborative research projects in molecular plan science.

ERA-CAPS aims to stimulate high quality, collaborative, transnational research in fundamental molecular plant science, to increase synergies between national programmes and to strengthen international research in the field.

The objective of the call is to facilitate multinational, collaborative research in all areas of molecular plant science, such as food and nutrition security, non-food crops, adaptation to a changing climate or biotic/abiotic stresses. Applications in other areas of molecular plant science are welcomed where the research answers fundamental biological questions of relevance to the development of the European and Global Research Area in molecular plant science.

Interested applicants are requested to contact the SNSF Administrative Office to clarify eligibility issues before submitting a pre-proposal.

For further details, please refer to the programme's official website. The submission deadline for pre-proposals is September 28, 2016.
