On a practical note: NCP Flanders will publish any updates (news, events, ...) about a concrete partnership within the programme domain(s) a partnership belongs to.

What are European Partnerships?

European Partnerships bring the European Commission and private and/or public partners together to address some of Europe’s most pressing challenges through concerted research and innovation initiatives. They are a key implementation tool of Horizon Europe, and contribute significantly to achieving the EU’s political priorities.

By bringing private and public partners together, European Partnerships help to avoid the duplication of investments and contribute to reducing the fragmentation of the research and innovation landscape in the EU.

Types of partnerships

There are 3 types of partnerships:

  • Co-programmed European Partnerships: partnerships between the Commission and mostly private (and sometimes public) partners.
  • Co-funded European Partnerships: partnerships involving EU countries, with research funders and other public authorities at the core of the consortium
  • Institutionalised European Partnerships: partnerships in the field of research and innovation between the Union, EU member states and/or industry.

The partnerships

For an overview of the partnership candidates, we refer to the official website of the European Union. You'll find them back by domain: 

Co-fund partnerships in Flanders

FWO

On the FWO website you can find a list of co-fund partnerships in which FWO participates: https://www.fwo.be/nl/onderzoeksfinanciering/internationale-samenwerking/intra-europese-onderzoeksprojecten/europees-kaderprogramma/horizon-europe-cofund-partnerschappen/

FWO participates in the so-called 'co-funded partnerships', because this is the appropriate instrument within the ERA ecosystem for a research funder such as FWO. In addition to a range of R&I activities, open, external periodic calls for research funding are organized in such a partnership. The latter also form the essence of the FWO participation.

The FWO participation in the European, multilateral partnerships is thus further consolidated, following extensive participation in H2020 programs (including ERA-NET, EJP).

VLAIO

On the VLAIO website you can find a list of networks / co-fund partnerships in which VLAIO participates:
https://www.vlaio.be/nl/subsidies-financiering/subsidies-voor-ooi-een-internationaal-consortium/netwerken

Through VLAIO's participation in international networks, Flemish project partners can receive funding directly from Flanders for their international cooperation on research, development and innovation (R&D&I). The agency uses its existing support programs to realize the financing of the Flemish partners within these networks / partnerships.
