Invitation to events for ERC Starting Grant applicants in the upcoming 2023 call  


ERC Starting Grants workshop

Research Services invites you to our ERC Starting Grants workshop on 30 May. The workshop is open to researchers who are planning to apply for an ERC Starting Grant (StG) with Lund University as their host institution. The workshop is run by Yellow Research, a consultancy firm with extensive experience in running ERC workshops and in pre-submission review of ERC Grants. It will provide participants with an in-depth overview and practical information on the ERC Starting Grant scheme. Participants should gain a deeper understanding of the proposal format and the key issues relating to planning, writing and costing a proposal. 

You are welcome to register for this workshop if you are planning to apply for an ERC StG in the next call (call 2023) with Lund University as your host institution, or if you are interested in applying for an ERC grant in the future. The workshop will be held over Zoom, in English.

Date:     Monday, 30 May, from 9.00 to 15:00.
Venue:  Zoom
