CHIST-ERA Cofund (2017–2022)
The Academy of Finland participates in the CHIST-ERA (European Coordinated Research on Long-term Challenges in Information and Communication Sciences & Technologies) ERA-NET. The aim of CHIST-ERA is to reinforce transnational collaboration between the participating organisations in challenging multidisciplinary research in the area of ICST with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. By participating in the CHIST-ERA ERA-NET, the Academy of Finland can help Finnish researchers in the field to collaborate with European colleagues to ultimately promote the quality, impact and renewal of research both in Finland and globally.
CHIST-ERA was launched in 2010. The current CHIST-ERA III is the successor of CHIST-ERA II, which will end in November 2017. CHIST-ERA III is coordinated by Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), France, and includes funding organisations from some 20 countries. The first CHIST-ERA III joint call has been scheduled for October 2017.
