European Research Council (ERC)

European Research Council (ERC) grants support individual researchers of any nationality and age who wish to pursue their frontier research. In particularly, the ERC encourages proposals that cross disciplinary boundaries, pioneering ideas that address new and emerging fields and applications that introduce unconventional, innovative approaches.

ERC Synergy Grants  

The ERC Synergy Grants will enable small groups of 2-4 Principal Investigators (with a designated Lead Principal Investigator) and their teams to bring together complementary skills, knowledge, and resources, in order to jointly address research problems at the frontier of knowledge going beyond what the individual Principal Investigators could achieve alone. Depending on the nature of a project the group may involve Principal Investigators and team members from other research organizations situated in the same or a different country.

  • ERC Synergy grants may be up to € 15 000 000 for a period of six years
  • With the focus on the Principal Investigators, the concepts of the individual team or ERC Synergy Group are fundamentally different from that of a network or consortium of undertakings, universities, research centres or other legal entities. Proposals of the latter type should not be submitted to the ERC
  • Host Institution must be established in an EU Member State or Associated country
  • A grant from ERC will cover eligible direct cost to 100% . The contribution to indirect will be calculated as 20% of the direct costs.

ERC Advanced Grant

The ERC Advanced Investigator Grants encourage substantial advances at the frontier of knowledge by supporting excellent, leading advanced investigators to pursue ground breaking, high-risk/high gain research.

  • Pioneering frontier research in any field of science, engineering and scholarship
  • Principal Investigator candidates can be of any nationality, must be scientifically independent and have a recent research track-record and profile which identifies them as leaders in their respective field(s) of research
  • Host organisation must be established in an EU Member State or an Associated Country
  • Funding normally up to € 2.5 M per grant (in certain cases up to € 3.5 M ) for a period of up to 5 years
  • A grant from ERC will cover eligible direct cost to 100% . The contribution to indirect will be calculated as 20% of the direct costs.
