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


The ERA-CAPS (ERA-NET Coordinating Action in Plant Science) is to launch its 3rd transnational call for proposals for collaborative research in the fields of 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 aforementioned field.

The objective of the upcoming 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. The call is scheduled to open on 23 June 2016.

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