Get Ready for the ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grant Call for Proposals

20 July 2011 the Call for Proposals for the ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grants (ERC Starting Grants) is to be published. However, should you wish to pursue the prestigious grant, you should start to brush up on the grant criterion and start to plan your research proposal. The Research Support Office is in possession of a draft Work Programme that you can obtain by request.

ERC Starting Grants aim to support up-and-coming research leaders who are about to establish or consolidate a proper research team and to start conducting independent research in Europe. The scheme targets promising researchers who have the proven potential of becoming independent research leaders. It will support the creation of excellent new research teams and will strengthen others that have been recently created.
