Information on First Call launched by China for the EU-China Research and Innovation Co-Funding

As Chinese participants are no longer automatically funded through Horizon 2020, the Chinese Government and the EU agreed to set up a co-funding mechanism (CFM) on research and innovation to support joint projects between European and Chinese universities, research institutions and companies.

This first call covers a variety of thematic areas including food, agriculture, biotechnology, information and communication technology, space, aviation, energy, health, transportation, water resources, energy conservation, advanced manufacturing, new materials, sustainable urbanization, and exchanges of young scientists.

Two deadlines are foreseen for 2016: 31 March and 31 July 2016. The total budget is 200 million RMB or 28 million euro for 2016. Please check the call for eligibility and other information.

The EU-China CFM is the last of a series of support schemes put in place by EU international partner countries to enable a stronger and more balanced collaboration between their universities, research institutes and enterprises with European ones under Horizon 2020. Within the Horizon 2020 work programme for 2016/17 published in October 2015 a number of topics specifically encourage cooperation with China (see list here).
