ERA-CAPS self-sustained initiative: current partners and observers

ERA-CAPS is an initiative of national and regional funding organisations working together to promote the robust development of Plant Sciences and to structure and coordinate national efforts and funding programmes. The network was created in 2011 and funded by the European Commission under FP7. From August 2015 and onwards, ERA-CAPS  operates as a self-sustained initiative (i.e. without the financial support of the EC; all costs are being covered by the members of the initiative).

From 2011 till 2015, ERA-CAPS has launched two joint calls. It is the major aim of the self-sustained ERA-CAPS initiative to continue joint activities including a joint call for proposals in the field of Plant Sciences.

The list below reflects the current status of partners and observers.  ERA-CAPS is an open network and invites research funding organisations to join the initiative as partners or observers. Please contact the Coordinator at BBSRC.
