This report is D 3.5 ‘Update Report on the impacts of networks’ and draws on the following inputs:
– two large scale impact assessment surveys: a) one focusing on the views of the ERA-NET Cofund
about their participation in the new ERA-NET version, and b) a similar survey focusing on
the rest of the ERA-NET Community, and
– an advanced statistical analysis of the combined responses of the two cohorts suggesting that based on
the way respondents replied to the questions posed a certain ‘chain of impacts’ can be identified.
ERA-NETs have taken different forms over the years. ERA-NET actions in FP6 and FP7 provided support for
actors implementing public research programmes to coordinate their activities e.g. by mapping relevant
programmes and identifying common ground for collaboration and eventually developing joint calls for transnational proposals. ERA-NET Plus actions in FP7 provided – in a limited number of cases with high European
added value – additional EU financial support to top-up research funding of a single joint call for proposals.
The ERA-NET Cofund instrument under Horizon 2020 merged the former ERA-NET and ERA-NET Plus into
a single instrument with the central and compulsory element of implementing one substantial call with top-up
funding from the Commission.
