European Research Council (ERC) grants support individual researchers of any nationality and age who wish to pursue their frontier research. The ERC encourages in particular proposals that cross disciplinary boundaries, pioneering ideas that address new and emerging fields and applications that introduce unconventional, innovative approaches.
Lotte will be speaking about the 3 different types of ERC Grant:
- ERC Starting Grants – for top researchers with 2 to 7 years of experience after their PhD; Grants amount to up to €2 million for 5 years
- ERC Consolidator Grants - Support top researchers with 7 to 12 years of experience after their PhD; Grants amount to up to €2.75 million for 5 years
- ERC Advanced Grants - Open to excellent established researchers who have a recent research track-record which identifies them as leaders in their respective field of research; Grants amount up to €3.5 million for 5 years
