Goal : This first ERA-CAPS call will fund high quality collaborative transnational research in fundamental molecular plant science. The expected duration of projects will be three years.
Partners : 16 ERA-CAPS partner organisations or ERA-CAPS associated organisations from 15 countries will participate in this first call (see call notice for details)
Topic : By agreement of the funding organisations involved, the first joint call launched by ERA-CAPS is intended to allow maximum engagement of the plant science community and is therefore broad in scope, covering all areas of molecular plant science.
