2 ERA-NET for Research infrastructures Objectives  To step up the cooperation and coordination of national and/or regional programmes/activities towards their mutual opening and implementation of joint activities  To contribute to the development of the European Research Area by improving coherence across Europe of such programmes/activities  To help developing a European policy for research infrastructures Eligible partners are only program owners (National/region/ministries/governments or Research councils and funding agencies managing research programs)

3 Motivations for a Nuclear Physics ERANET- NUPNET In our field the challenge is to merge the national programs to create a stronger and more cohesive research activity which is truly European in scope Two conditions are required 1- Independent scientific assessment of the field: emerging areas,key developments, needed instruments, recommendations and scientific priorities. This is done by NuPECC and respected 2- Current funding procedures (separate funding agencies reflect separate priorities) has to be given a strategic direction to help to align some decisions on commonly agreed European research goals. This ERA-NET NUPNET proposal aims to meet this challenge

4 GOALS of NuPNET Mapping the science priorities (NuPECC) into a funding action plan Establish procedures and funding for trans-national common activities (variable geometry) Identification of joint activities to be implemented in the framework of NuPNET. Launching of a pilot joint activity Establish a sustainable action beyond this project 15 representatives of NP agencies, NuPECC delegation and EU officers met in PARIS to discuss the opportunity to launch a ERANET proposal called NuPNET All Participants unanimously agreed to built such proposal to be ready for the first FP7 ERANET call in May 2007 INITIATIVE PARIS June 2006

5 NuPNET Consortium meets for the first time at the kick-off meeting on 27 March 2008 in Paris NuPNET proposal was successful Budget : 1,3 M€ Start of the Project: 1 March 2008
