This Master Class for the ERA-NET project managers was organised with the focus on lessons learned from the first Cofunds. Also learnings from Plus projects were included. In addition learning topics more from ERA-NETs with focus on innovation, multi-ERA-net calls and how to manage institutional funds had been discussed. There was also time to look into the Framework Partnership Agreement and Specific Grant Agreement – the new instruments for ERA-nets starting in 2017.

All the participants learned important tips and tricks for their current or future work. Mrs. Ulla Sonne Bertelsen for example, was one of the organisers and co-chaired the meeting and presented the experiences from CORE Organic on how this ERA-NET is successful in optimising the use of national funds and raise the level of scientific excellence across countries.
