ERC 2022 Starting and Consolidator Grant Calls: Online Workshop

The aim of the workshop is to provide participants with essential information concerning the submission of ERC Starting (ERC-StG) and Consolidator Grant (ERC CoG) applications. The call deadline for the ERC-StG is planned for 13th January 2022 and for the ERC-CoG on 17th March 2022. The ERC Programme is open to all subject areas i.e. bottom up. The ERC-StG is aimed at researchers 2-7 years post-PhD who already have a proven excellent track record and important publications. The ERC StG will provide funding of up to 1.5 million Euros (for up to 5 Years) and will support the Principal Investigator to build their own independent research team. The ERC-CoG scheme is aimed at researchers 7-12 years post PhD (or longer in certain cases) who can already demonstrate independent working and extensive research, in addition to important publications. The ERC Consolidator Grant will provide a maximum of 2 million EUR (for up to 5 years) and should support the PI in the strengthening of an already existing research group. Further benchmarks could be monographs, patents, presentations at international conferences or prizes.

Further information about the calls can be found here: https://erc.europa.eu/

When and Where?

The DLE Research Services and Career Development Department will hold one workshop for both calls on 20th October from 16h-18h which will provide general information on the ERC-StG and ERC-CoG schemes. This workshop will also be an opportunity to get in-depth information and feedback from ERC grantees about their successful applications.

The workshop will take place online and in English.
