M-ERA.NET aims to strengthen the contribution of materials R&D to energy-related applications where applicable.

The Call 2018 includes the following thematic areas:

  • Multiscale modeling for materials engineering and processing (M3EP)
  • Innovative surfaces, coatings and interfaces
  • High performance composites
  • Functional materials
  • New strategies for advanced material-based technologies in health applications
  • Materials for additive manufacturing


Pre-proposals have to be submitted before 12 June 2018 12:00 noon (Brussels time)



VLAIO provides a budget of 1 million euro for the financing of the Flemish part of MERA.NET projects. The modalities in the research and development projects are used for this. The maximum support for Flemish participation in an M-ERA.NET project is limited to 500,000 euro.
