ERC 10th Anniversary Event - European Funding Opportunities for Top Scientists


ERC

 

The European Research Council (ERC) awards long-term grants to individual researchers from anywhere  in the world who wish to carry out their research projects in a host organisation  based in Europe.  Excellence is the sole evaluation criteria.

Under the EU research programme "Horizon 2020", the ERC has a budget of over €13 billion for the  period 2014-2020.

The ERC supports the best and most creative scientists to identify and explore new opportunities and  directions in any field of research.  It particularly encourages proposals which cross disciplinary  boundaries; address new and emerging fields; and introduce unconventional and innovative approaches.
