    The central idea of ERASynBio is to promote the robust development of Synthetic Biology by structuring and coordinating national efforts and investment. ERASynBio's main activities include developing a strategic research agenda / white paper, which supports the emergence of national Synthetic Biology programmes and lays the ground for transnational funding activities via joint calls in the project. ERASynBio stimulates and tackles the interdisciplinary nature and immaturity of the field by offering training and educational possibilities, establishing an interdisciplinary advisory board and inviting observers of other funding organisations. Tight collaboration between academia and industry aiming to fertilize the innovation process is occuring on several levels.
