The Era-net Transport has the following objectives:
Preparation and launch of regular large-sized annual flagship initiatives, coordinated with the Horizon 2020 programme
Preparation and launch of small- and medium-sized transnational research and innovation funding initiatives.
Expansion of cooperation network and increased windows of opportunities for transnational collaborations, involving more national and regional funding programmes.
Enhanced and smoothened implementation of transnational cooperation actions through structural adaptations of funding schemes and procedures in partner countries/regions.
Exploration and –if possible- deployment of new ways, geometries and settings for transnational cooperation and funding, e.g. through deployment of Structural and Cohesion funds.
Enlarged visibility of national research and innovation funding activities, their results and achievements and of the added value of transnational collaborations through ENT and thereby increased impact in the ERA.
