Partner Search Tool for M-ERA.NET Calls
History of the PSF:
The NMP Team partner search facility (PSF) was funded by the European Commission in the NMP Team project. The project itself ended in late 2020 and thus has the official support for this Partner Search Facility. Over its course it attracted almost 5000 users and hosted more than 370 offers for cooperation since its relaunch in 2017.
However, the PSF is far from dying, it will remain the partner search tool for the M-ERA.NET calls. In the duration of M-ERA.NET 3, the cofunded call 2021 and the non-cofunded call 2022 have been launched and closed.
The current call is open since 1st March 2023. It is now possible to create cooperation offers for the M-ERA.NET topics.
