The European Research Council (ERC) is the Europe’s foremost funder of bottom-up, investigator-driven funding. It supports high-quality frontier research by the best and brightest researchers in Europe, and is one of the most popular and competitive funding agencies in Europe. It is a flagship component of Horizon 2020, the European Union’s Research Framework Programme for 2014 to 2020. The ERC has 4 primary funding schemes:
For talented early-career scientists 2-7 years after their PhD to establish their own research group.
To help scientists 7-12 years post-PhD consolidate their independence and strengthen their research team.
Long-term funding for established researchers with a track record of significant research achievements.
Funding for groups of 2-4 Principal Investigators to work together on ambitious research problems.
At this seminar, you will learn more about the ERC and its funding schemes, as well as what changes to expect as the European Union transitions to its new Research Framework Programme, Horizon Europe.
The seminar will be led by Lena Renner, Sweden’s National Contact Point for the ERC. It will consist of a 45 minute presentation, followed by ample time for questions. The details as follows:
