Partners | ERASysAPP


The main objective of the ERANET proposal Systems Biology Applications – ERASysAPP (app = application = translational systems biology) is to promote multidimensional and complementary European systems biology projects, programmes and research initiatives on a number of selected research topics. Inter alia, ERASysAPP will initiate, execute and monitor a number of joint transnational calls on systems biology research projects with a particular focus on applications – or in other words so called translational systems biology research approaches (application-oriented and/or industry-relevant). The joint call proposals and their respective attention will be on applied aspects of complex biological processes in microorganisms, plants and animals. As common feature, all addressed proposal topics will tackle biological and physiological processes of common interest in the field of life sciences and biotechnology.

FAIRDOM will be supporting ERASysAPP projects in the management of research assets. The data sharing policy associated with this work is available here.
