FP7 ERA-NET on Nanosafety
Safe Implementation of Innovative Nanoscience and Nanotechnology

National Funding Agency for Research (ANR)

Division / Department: Health & Biology

Country: France

The ANR was established by the French government in 2005 to fund research projects, based on competitive schemes giving researchers the best opportunities to realise their projects and paving the way for ground-breaking new knowledge. The role of the Agency is to bring more flexibility to the French research system, foster new dynamics and devise cutting edge-strategies for acquiring new knowledge. By identifying priority areas and fostering private-public collaborations, it also aims at enhancing the general level of competitiveness of both the French research system and the French economy. Since its creation, the Agency’s budget has been growing, stabilising at €854 M in 2010. 6390 applications were received and evaluated in 2010, and 1373 of them were funded. ANR funds are available in all scientific fields, for both fundamental and industrial research. With a peer review process matching the highest international standards, ANR’s general goal is to fund excellent research, while also facilitating innovation and interdisciplinary work and developing European and international collaborations.

The ANR national programmes linked to the SIINN ERA-NET are the “Nanosystems and Nanotechnologies” programme & the “Contaminants & Ecosystems” programme.


The SIINN ERA-NET is funded under the ERA-NET scheme of the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Commission, Research Directorate- General, Grant Agreement No. 265799
