CHIST-ERA is a coordination and co-operation activity of national (and regional) research funding organisations mainly in Europe. 

The aim is to reinforce the transnational collaboration between the participating states in challenging multidisciplinary research in the area of ICST with the potential to lead to significant breakthroughs. The partner organisations identify emergent scientific fields allowing researchers to engage in high risk, high impact projects by launching each year a transnational call for research proposals. 

In addition CHIST-ERA follow the funded projects in organising a yearly CHIST-ERA Conference where projects present their goals and achievements to the research community, CHIST-ERA partners, Flagships communities and other stakeholders.
