What is an ERA-NET?

An ERA-NET is a coordination activity funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme. National and regional ministries and funding organisations are able to participate in ERA-NET projects. The main objective of an ERA-NET is to provide a framework to network and mutually open national or regional research programs, leading to concrete cooperations such as the development and implementation of joint transnational calls. The ERA-NET activity complements the EU research programs. The EU Commission funds the networking activities and the management of the joint calls. However, the funding of the research activities resulting from the ERA-NET calls comes from the budgets of the regional and national partners involved in the ERA-NET.

Welcome to SIINN

The SIINN ERA-NET promotes the safe and rapid transfer of European research results in nanoscience and nanotechnology (N&N) into industrial applications. National and regional resources will be virtually pooled to create a transnational programme of research. SIINN will bring together today’s fragmented research activities on the potential risks of engineered nanomaterials for environment, human health, and safety.
