Abstract — This paper is adapted from the final report for the Seventh Framework Programme FP7 European project SUPER-IRON (Grant Agreement No. 283204), which was focused on the worldwide progress in the research on iron-based superconductors (FeSCs) for large scale applications. SUPER-IRON was a coordinated EU-Japan research project, which lasted from 2011 to 2015, and was funded within the call FP7-NMP-2011-EU-Japan on Fundamental Properties of Novel Superconducting Materials (NMP.2011.2.2-6). The European consortium was led by Prof. Marina Putti and the Japanese consortium was led by Prof. Jun-ichi Shimoyama. The project webpage can be found at http://www.super-iron.eu/.
