FLAG-ERA plans to launch its third Joint Transnational Call (JTC 2019). The call is designed in collaboration with the FET Flagships Graphene and Human Brain Project and aims to add a third wave of transnational partnering projects to support and extend their work.

The purpose of the pre-announcement is to enable interested parties to start building their consortia and preparing their proposals. The foreseen call topics and list of participating countries are provided below. Further information will be provided on this page in the coming weeks.

Note that this pre-announcement is for information purposes only. It does not create any obligation for the FLAG-ERA consortium nor for any of the participating funding organisations, and the official call announcement shall prevail.

Call topics

The FLAG-ERA JTC 2019 comprises two topics, one for each Flagship. For each topic, the call covers a specific list of research areas listed below. The Graphene part of the call is sub-divided into two sub-calls, one for basic research and one for applied research and innovation, which differ in term of country participation (see below) and will be evaluated by different panels using different weights on the ‘excellence’ and ‘impact’ evaluation criteria. It is expected that proposals targeting TRLs up to 4 at project end are submitted under the sub-call on basic research and that proposals targeting TRLs of 5 and above at project end are submitted under the sub-call on applied research and innovation. While some topic areas can be more relevant to one sub-call or the other, for all areas it is up to the applicants to decide under which sub-call they apply depending on the content of their proposal.
