The Collaborative Research Groups are selected/confirmed by the EAPRA Board prior to the Spring / Autumn Meetings according to the current H2020 / Horizon Europe work programme and other applicable funding programmes.
Each Collaborative Research Groups is coordinated by a Moderator selected amongst the experts of the Foresight Groups. Within these groups EARPA members can promote their project idea to find (EARPA) partners to join a proposal and define an EARPA Champion that will lead the discussions within EARPA and with other potential consortium partners.
The moderators are selected out of the technology experts assigned to the Foresight Groups by the EARPA President. The open calls to be discussed within each Collaborative Research Groups are distributed by the moderator via the Secretariat.
In 2019 and partly as well in 2020, CRGs on GV, MG, FoF, ICT, ECSEL, ART, LC BAT, NMBP and Marie Curie were organised. As the new HEU framework programme evolves, we will adapt these sessions accordingly.
