FFG online session: Writing a compelling ERC proposal - For Starters and Consolidators


2021-11-30, 15:00-16:30

The FFG Academy offers a string of interactive online sessions to support researchers in their preparations for a Starting or Consolidator Grant proposal.


With the ERC Starting Grant, the ERC supports talented early-career scientists (minimum 2, maximum 7 years post-PhD) in establishing their scientific independence, often by heading their own research team for the first time. The ERC Consolidator Grant addresses excellent early-career scientists (minimum 7, maximum 12 years post-PhD) seeking to consolidate their independent research agenda and team.

All registered participants will receive a link to a recorded overview presentation covering all ERC scientific domains (Physical Sciences and Engineering, Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities) in advance of the three sessions. This introductory presentation captures the main principles of ERC funding and key features of the Starting and Consolidator Grant Call 2022.

Three interactive ERC domain-specific online sessions will be held, with the aim to provide a forum to also discuss questions and challenges that may be more specific to certain fields of research.
