Differences between ERA-NETs and CORNET


  • Administration effort vs. lean management

ERA-NETs receive budget from the European Commission, which is associated with contractual obligations and a considerably high workload in administration.

CORNET is a self-sustained network, which concentrates on its core business: funding Collective Research projects. We are free from reporting and accounting duties or common pot discussions.

  • European vs. international

The ERA-NET partners are usually funding organisations from Europe.

CORNET is open for all countries and regions worldwide.

Things in common between CORNET and ERA-NETs


  • ERA-NET funding principle

Each participant in a CORNET project receives funding from his national or regional programme. We have maintained this funding principle from our history as ERA-NET.
