M-ERA.NET is an EU funded network which has been established to support and increase the coordination of European research programmes and related funding in materials science and engineering. Between 2012 and 2016, the M-ERA.NET consortium has been and is still contributing to the restructuring of the European Research Area (ERA) by operating as a single innovative and flexible network of funding organisations. Annual joint calls were launched to support excellent transnational RTD projects, helping to create a stronger European RTD community whilst supporting the European economy. The M-ERA.NET project will end at the beginning at 2016. A successor project is currently planned under the H2020 ERA-NET Cofund scheme.

It will be held as a satellite event of the E-MRS Fall Meeting in Warsaw, Poland, on the 15th of September 2015 11:00 to 17.00 (room 309).

We will present major M-ERA.NET achievements so far and will give an outlook to future funding opportunities. Successful RTD projects funded from M-ERA.NET joint calls will be presented by research consortia. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity for multilateral discussions with the public funding organisations and networking with the research community for future project ideas.
