ERANID, the European Research Area Network on Illicit Drugs, is an ERA-NET scheme which consists of 9 organisations in 6 different EU Member States (BE, FR, IT, NL, PT & UK). The network aims to improve cooperation in illicit drug research in order to allow well-founded policy decisions.
In order to do so, the Network has already developed shared priorities for research and will launch a first joint call on 15 September 2015 that aims at funding multidisciplinary transnational research in “Understanding drug use pathways”.
This joint call will see more than 4 million Euros being made available for the researchers by the funding organisations involved in the call. The potential participating countries will be Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Sweden and the Netherlands.
The funding is based on the virtual common pot system in which countries fund their national researchers in networks of a minimum of two, but preferably three or more applicants from participating countries.
We are pleased to inform you that the pre-announcement of the joint ERANID call is now available; you can find it in the attachment or you can access it via our website.
