In 2017, MarTERA opened the first transnational call for collaborative research which was initiated by 18 funding organisations of the former ERA-NET MARTEC consortium and JPI OCEANS members from 16 countries/regions and cofounded by the European Union under Horizon 2020.
Following the ranking of the International Evaluation Panel, the MarTERA Steering Committee recommended 19 full proposals for funding (total cost EUR 33 million, requested funding EUR 23 million). These 19 projects were granted funding from the national funding organisations and cofunding by the EU. All projects from the first MarTERA call started successfully in early/mid 2018.
