The M-ERA.NET Conference 2015 was successfully held at the E-MRS Fall Meeting in Warsaw 15th of September. Participants were informed about the results of the M-ERA.NET network since 2012 and future funding opportunities for the next five years. Six coordinators of projects funded under the M-ERA.NET scheme presented their preliminary individual project results. In a following panel discussion the speakers were asked about their experience with international cooperation in general and the M-ERA.NET scheme in particular. Altogether, the M-ERANET was regarded as a good scheme in addition to other funding mechanism. Some coordinators addressed the fact as the main challenge that there are just some common M-ERA.NET rules but procedures are mainly based on individual national rules. Others see the usage of national rules instead of common European ones as the main advantage. Because of that M-ERA.NET is a very good tool to make first experiences with international cooperation based on national rules. The challenge of finding the right partners and the challenges for coordinators in these transnational projects were also addressed by the panelists. At the end of the panel discussion a final wish for future M-ERA.NET Calls was expressed by the speakers: the alignment of procedures and rules, easier option for getting a follow-up project, higher amount of funding available and that all countries should be included as funding providers was mentioned by the speakers.
The conference closed with a one hour poster session with lively bilateral discussions.
