This report provides a first mapping of the active ERA-NETs as well as a battery of indicators to characterise the transnational networks. It has been produced as part of NETWATCH (, a main aim of which is the development and implementation of an analytical framework for transnational R&D collaboration at European level.
This mapping provides a snap-shot of the ERA-NET landscape at the time of the analysis and involves collecting information along a range of dimensions that 'characterise' ERA-NETs (e.g. number of countries involved, joint activities developed, thematic coverage, etc.).
The data collection for the first mapping exercise was carried out by JRC-IPTS between October 2009 and January 2010. It was organised through an online questionnaire that was sent to the coordinators of the running ERA-NETs via the NETWATCH information platform.
The scope of the mapping includes data from a total of 47 active ERA-NETs, from which: 32 are FP7 ERANETs; 8 are ERA-NETs Plus, and 7 are FP6 ERA-NETs (running at least until the end of 2010).
