The Second ERA-CAPS joint call for proposals is
entitled: “Expanding the European Research Area in Molecular Plant Sciences II”.
Due to a recent decision of the Executive Board of the French Agence National de la Recherche, ANR has withdrawn as a funding partner from the second ERA-CAPS Call for proposals. For further explanations regarding this decision and the consequences we would like to refer to the French national call coordinator. The ERA-CAPS Network regrets the withdrawal of ANR but hopes for renewed collaboration in future.
Goal : This second ERA-CAPS call will fund high quality collaborative transnational research projects in fundamental molecular plant science. Research themes include (but are not limited to): Food Security; Non-Food Crops; Adaptation to a Changing Climate; and Biotic/Abiotic Stress.
The expected duration of projects will be three years.
This is a 2-step call.
Submission period for step 1 (pre-proposals) ends on 14 March 2014, 12:00 CET.
