Era-net Transport pre-dominantly serves to the owners and managers of transport research programmes by facilitating cooperation between their national/regional funding programmes in order to reduce fragmentation of the European Research Area (ERA) for Transport. Below you can find some cooperation services developed in ENT. Please note that due to the expiry of EC co-funding and limited own resources of the current ENT network some services may no longer be fully up to date.
The Era-net Ambassadors have been appointed to foster transnational research collaboration in transport all across Europe by acting as figureheads to the 'outside world'. They are the privileged contact points for new Programme Owners & Managers eager to develop closer ties with Era-net Transport and its initiatives like transnational research calls. They can provide support to countries and regions considering the set-up of programming activities in their own sphere. At the same time, the Ambassadors accomplish an important function as link between existing member states/regions in order to deepen and intensify collaboration in specific activities and calls.
The Ambassadors are always open to your questions and will do their utmost to support your requests in order to further promote transport research with existing and potential members, so as to actively contributing to the European Research Area in Transport.
If you are a programme owner/manager please visit our Ambassador Page for further contact details.
The Action Groups are small- and medium-sized transnational research and innovation funding initiative set up inside the Era-net Transport. They were based on common national/regional research and innovation needs and running programmes. For more information contact Kees van der Reijden (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Era-net Transport has developed a mature and sophisticated toolkit to efficiently support transnational funding activities. This toolkit comprises comprehensive guidelines, a compilation of experiences and best practices and supportive procedural elements.
