ERC in brief

  • The ERC’s mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.
  • There are individual grants which can be applied for in three categories depending on the academic age of the researcher: Starting Grant – 2 to 7 years after completing a PhD, Consolidator Grant –7 to 12 years after completing a PhD, Advanced Grant – senior researchers based on CV and track record over the past 10 years. The Synergy Grant is for a team of two to four researchers.
  • The ERC Grants are aimed at researchers with a strong research track record who show the potential to become future research leaders within their field, or already established research leaders.
  • Applications take place in international competition – applicants are from all over the world but host institutions are within the EU.
  • Funding: StG 1.5 million euro up to 5 years, CoG 2 million euro up to 5 years, AdG 2.5 million euro up to 5 years, SyG  10 million euro up to 6 years.
