BS-ERA.NET is a networking project aimed at integrating the participating countries from the Black Sea extended region in the European Research Area by linking research activities within existing national, bilateral and regional RTD programmes.
BS-ERA.NET is financed by the European Commission within the FP7 and managed by a consortium of 17 institutions from 13 European countries.

The duration of the project is 48 months (January 2009 – December 2012).

The types of the activities that are planned during the implementation period of the project are as followings:

  • Information exchange between Member States and Candidate countries and with Black Sea Region countries promoting an effective and efficient international scientific EU cooperation strategy at EU level;
  • Definition and preparation of joint activities;
  • Implementation of the designed mechanisms and instruments in order to harmonize the stand alone activities at national and regional level.

The overall strategy of the project takes into account the current situation existing in the Black Sea Region concerning the aspects of the institutional structures, decision making lines, bureaucratic threats and access to information.
