ERC Starting Grants workshop
Research Services invites you to our ERC Starting Grants workshop on 20 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 2020), or if you are interested in applying for an ERC grant in the future. Attendance is free of charge, and lunch is included. The workshop will be held in English.
Date: Monday 20 May 2019, from 9.00 and 16.00.
Venue: LUX:B152, Helgonabacken 3, Lund
Extra session and training camp for ERC Starting Grants
Apart from the ERC workshop on 20 May, Research Services will arrange two connected events with the aim of giving ERC StG applicants an extra boost in the 2020 call. You are welcome to register for these activities if you are planning to apply for an ERC Starting Grant in the 2020 call.
On 28 May we have arranged an extra session to help you kick-start your proposal writing, and to receive feedback on your CV/Track Record. The session is in preparation for the ERC training camp in August. In order to attend this session on 28 May, you must submit a short project synopsis, CV and track record (2 pages each, in total max 6 pages) by 23 May at 12:00. Details on where to submit this material will be included in your confirmation email for attendance at the extra session by the end of April.
On 20-21 August there will be a two-day training camp where you can receive valuable information from ERC evaluators and ERC grantees, as well as get feedback on your draft proposal. To attend this training camp, you must provide a draft proposal (section B1 of the application, including CV and Track Record) by 10 August. Submission details will be included in your confirmation email before the summer. Please note that you may only attend the ERC training camp once.
Preliminary deadline for ERC Starting Grant call 2020: 16 October 2019
