Research Services invites you to our European Research Council (ERC) Synergy Grant information session on May 13, 2019. The session is primarily for researchers considering submitting a Synergy Grant proposal in either the 2020 call or soon after, but researchers with a general interest in the scheme are also welcome. It offers an opportunity to hear from people who conceived and manage the scheme, as well as a panel member from the 2018 evaluation. The speakers are:
- Klaus Bock, ERC Vice President 2016-2018, and chair of the task force which established Synergy Grants
- Lucia Farina, Officer at the ERC Executive agency involved in implementing the Synergy Grant scheme
- Anne L’Huillier, Panel member from the 2018 Synergy Grant call
There will be presentations on the scheme, as well as a panel session where there will be ample opportunity for discussion with the speakers. The session will be held in English.
The ERC Synergy Grant scheme is for groups of two to maximum four Principal Investigators working together and bringing different skills and resources to tackle ambitious research problems. It provides funding of up to €10 million over up to 6 years, and further information can be found at: https://erc.europa.eu/funding/synergy-grants
