CHIST-ERA is a coordination and co-operation activity of national research funding organisations mainly in Europe and is supported by the European Union Framework Programmes for Research and Innovation (FP7/HORIZON 2020). The partner organisations identify emergent scientific fields allowing researchers to engage in high risk, high impact projects by launching each year a transnational call for research proposals.

The call 2018 will Focus on «Big data and process modelling for smart industry».

Research consortia from at least three member states can apply for topics which are published these yearly calls.
