The funding line 'Science & Technology' of the ERA.Net RUS Plus Call 2017 closed on 4 July 2017. Researchers from Russia and Europe had been invited to submit their ideas for a joint research project in the fields of nanotechnology, health, environment/climate change, humanities/social sciences, or robotics. A call for proposals for Russian-European innovation projects is expected to open on 20 July 2017. The new calls follow the huge success of a similar support measure implemented in 2014-2016 that resulted in 18 funded 'Innovation' and 45 funded 'Science & Technology' projects.

The ERA.NET PLUS initiative with Russia aims at enhancing the coordination of national or regional research programmes in the EU Member States and countries associated to Horizon 2020 in order to strenghten STI cooperation with Russia.
A first joint call for transnational research projects in the funding lines 'Innovation' and 'Science & Technology' was successfully implemented in 2014-2016. As a result of the call, 63 joint projects (18 in 'Innovation', 45 in 'Science &Technology') were selected for funding. 25 funding parties from 16 countries and the EU supported these research projects with a total volume of EUR 20 million.
Based on this success, a second joint call is has now been implemented: The ERA.Net RUS Plus Call 2017 represents another crucial step in the development of a solid basis for a joint programmatic approach between Russia and the EU Members States and Associated Countries.
