ERA-HDHL was the first ERA-NET Cofund of the JPI-HDHL. Its aim was to provide a robust platform for implementing Joint Funding Activities (JFA) that address the research challenges that are identified and described in the Strategic Research Agenda and Implementation Plans of JPI HDHL. ERA-HDHL objectives were also to improve coordination and reduce the overlap between national and EU funding in relevant fields of research, achieve a critical mass and ensure better use of limited resources in fields of mutual interests.
ERA-HDHL ran for a period of six years, from February 2016 to January 2022.The first Joint Funding Activity of ERA-HDHL was to support research in the field of Biomarkers of Nutrition and Health cofunded with the European Commission. Its aim was to fund multidisciplinary transnational research consortia that used innovative and scientific approaches to increase knowledge on the development and validation of biomarkers for nutrition and health and to create a transnational network of researchers collaborating in these fields, well integrated at the international level. Five additional JFAs were implemented based on the Implementation Plans of the JPI HDHL. ERA-HDHL welcomed the participation of new funders, not belonging to ERA-HDHL consortium, and facilitated the collaboration between JPI HDHL, FACCE JPI, and JPI OCEANS on nutrition and food security.
