ERC-Grants

The European Research Council (ERC) forms part of Horizon 2020 in the Section 1 of the programme,  "Excellent Science" and is currently funding innovative basic and pioneering research in five programme lines in a world-wide competition. The sole selection criteria are the scientific excellence of the project itself and of its Principal Investigator.

The ERC funding lines are:

  • Starting Grant for young aspiring researchers (2-7 years after the PhD), with a funding value of up to 2 million euros over a maximum of five years
  • Consolidator Grant for young aspiring researchers  (7-12 years after PhD), with a funding value of up to 2.75 million euros over a maximum of five years
  • Advanced Grant for experienced, top-tier researchers, with a funding value of up to 3.5 million euros over a maximum of five years
  • Synergy Grant for groups comprising two to four researchers, with a funding value of up to 10 million euros over a maximum of six years
  • Proof of Concept for those researchers who have already applied for an ERC grant and who would like to convert the ideas ensuing from their project into innovations (maximum of 150,000 euros for a period of up to eighteen months)
