EUROPE'S AWARD FOR EXCEPTIONAL RESEARCHERS

 

Are you an outstanding researcher? Do you have groundbreaking or unconventional research ideas?

The funding programmes of the European Research Council (ERC) offer excellent opportunities for cutting-edge research across all scientific fields.  The ERC aims to reward innovative proposals by placing emphasis on the quality of the idea rather than the research area. In particular, the ERC promotes basic and visionary research where scientific excellence is the key criterion for selection. With a project budget of 1.5-2.5 million euros and a duration of up to 5 years, the ERC grants represent an attractive funding and an award for excellence.

The ERC Advanced Grant addresses established, leading principal investigators with an outstanding scientific track record who want long-term funding to pursue a groundbreaking, high-risk project. The ERC Consolidator Grant supports researcher who want to consolidate their independence by establishing or strengthening a research team and continuing to develop a success career in Europe. The aim of the ERC Starting Grant is to support the scientific independence of talented early-career scientists, who show a promosing scientific track record, by building up a dedicated research team.
