PLATFORM of bioeconomy ERA-NET Actions (PLATFORM)

PLATFORM is the forum for funders and programme managers in European Research Area Networks (ERA-NETs) in the fields that make up the bioeconomy: food, agriculture, aquaculture, fisheries, forestry, climate, biodiversity and biotechnologies. PLATFORM aims to improve exchange and cooperation and to strengthen their impact on the ERA and the European bioeconomy.

PLATFORM has become a robust forum and offers mutual learning and networking opportunities to the ERA-NET actors, thus enhancing coordination and maximising synergies. The project also engages other coordination networks with bioeconomic relevance, such as Joint Programming Initiatives (JPIs) and Standing Committee on Agricultural Research (SCAR) Working Groups.

PLATFORM ran from January 2012 until February 2015 (36 months). The Coordination Action (CA) was funded by the European Commission under the 7th Framework Programme. The consortium consisted of 13 partners from 8 European member states and associated countries.

PLATFORM continues further under Horizon2020 for the period 2015-2018. The current consortium consist of 9 partners from 6 European member states and associated countries. The project will build on the previous activities to further strengthen mutual learning, maximise synergies and increase coordination. It aims to expand the network to new ERA-NET actions (Cofund), to more JPIs and will also seek stronger interaction with the SCAR.
