ERA-CAPS: Second Joint Call Launched

Bonn, (PresseBox) - The European Research Area Network for Coordinating Action in Plant Sciences (ERA-CAPS) has launched its second joint call for proposals. The call, entitled "Expanding the European Research Area in Molecular Plant Sciences", will fund high quality collaborative transnational research in fundamental molecular plant science to meet the European and global demand for innovation in the area.

The call welcomes applications from collaborative research consortia in any area of molecular plant science. Like with the first call, four themes have been highlighted as areas of particular interest: Food Security, Non-Food Crops, Adaptation to a Changing Climate, and Biotic/Abiotic Stress. Applications outside of these themes are also welcomed.

Eighteen countries are contributing funds to the joint call: Austria (FWF), Belgium (F.R.S.-FNRS), Denmark (DASTI), Estonia (ETAg), France (ANR), Germany (DFG), Hungary (OTKA), Israel (MOARD), Italy (MIUR), Latvia (LZA), New Zealand (MBIE), Norway (RCN), Poland (NCBiR), Portugal (FCT), Serbia (MPNTR), Switzerland (SNF), the United Kingdom (BBSRC), and the United States of America (NSF).

The call has a two-stage application process, i.e. pre-proposals and full proposals, and consortia must comprise research groups from a minimum of three different countries (at least two from the above list; however, partners from other countries must be able to fund themselves). The closing date for pre-proposals is 14 March 2014, 12.00 CET.

Full details of the application process are available on the ERA-CAPS website, along with contact details for National Call Coordinators:
