Launch of 9 ERA-NET Plus Infravation projects

At their last meeting in Brussels on 15-16th April 2015, the ERA-Net Plus Infravation Steering Group agreed on the list of full proposals which had been selected for negotiation and funding. This selection list had arisen from the ranking list resulting from the peer-review of independent international experts. The negotiations of all the grant agreements of these proposals have been concluded throughout the summer and have led to the following 9 projects, which are currently in their launch phase.
