ERA-Net CHIST-ERA II
Since early 2010 FWF is partner in the ERANET "CHIST-ERA" ("European Coordinated Research on Long term Challenges in Information and Communication Sciences & Technologies").
The participating organisations aim to strengthen transnational activities of scientists in the partner countries to enable competition in cutting-edge Information and Communication research.
Participating organisations try to identify new and ambitious topics. Two parallel transnational Calls with "high risk – high impact" character are brought up every year to sustain consolidation and optimise European capacity within these topics.
In January 2012 CHIST ERA was replaced by CHIST ERA II, which is supported by FWF, too.
