ERC Calls

Two deadlines are approaching for the ERC sub-programme.

  • ERC ADVANCED GRANTS (Deadline: 28 April 2022) are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators at the career stage at which they are already established research leaders with a recognized track record of research achievements. Principal Investigators must demonstrate the ground-breaking nature, ambition, and feasibility of their scientific proposal. Advanced Grants may be awarded up to a maximum of EUR 2 500 000 for a period of 5 years. 
  • ERC PROOF OF CONCEPT GRANTS (Deadline 19 May 2022) aim to maximize the value of the excellent research that the ERC funds, by funding further work to verify the innovation potential of ideas arising from ERC funded projects. Proof of Concept Grants are therefore on offer only to Principal Investigators whose proposals draw substantially on their ERC funded research.
