Starting Grants

ERC Starting Grants aim to support up-and-coming research leaders who are about to establish 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. 

This scheme is for researchers of any nationality with 2-7 years of experience since completion of their PhD and who have a scientific track record showing great promise.  Funding of up to €1.5million for 5 years.  Calls for proposals are published once a year.

Consolidator Grants

ERC Consolidator Grants are designed to support researchers at the stage at which they are consolidating their own independent research team or programme. The scheme will strengthen independent and excellent new individual research teams that have been recently created.

This scheme is for researchers of any nationality with over 7 and up to 12 years of experience since completion of their PhD and who have a scientific track record showing great promise.  Funding of up to €2million for 5 years.  Calls for proposals are published once a year.

Advanced Grants

ERC Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders of any nationality and any age to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains.  The ERC Advanced Grant funding targets researchers who have already established themselves as independent research leaders in their own right.  

This scheme is for researchers of any nationality who are scientifically independent and have a recent research track record and profile which identifies them as leaders in their respective field(s) of research.  Funding of up to €2.5million for 5 years.  Calls for proposals are published once a year.
