Research Networking Programmes (RNPs) lay the foundation for nationally funded research groups to address major scientific and research infrastructure issues, in order to advance the frontiers of existing science. These long-term programmes, subject to selection through an open call and an international peer review process, must deal with high-quality science and demonstrate the added value of being carried out at the European level.
Please see the left navigation bar for all our current Research Networking Programmes.
ESF is currently streamlining its activities to be in line with the needs of its Member Organisations. During this process, there are no plans to launch a Call for RNP proposals in 2013.
