ERC Starting, Consolidator and Advanced Grant information session

Thursday 20th of April, 12.00 to 13.30
Venue: TBA

Are you planning to prepare a proposal in the ERC funding scheme?
If you’re looking for further information, insights and tips, or have questions about the scheme, this event is for you.

On the 20th of April, a UM-wide information session will be held on the Starting, Consolidator and Advanced Grant instruments of the European Research Council (ERC) within Horizon 2020. The program (see below) has been arranged in order to provide you with sufficient information on the scheme and the application process. During the presentations there is enough room to ask questions.

The UM specialist on ERC funding will introduce the scheme and give some information on the application process. A successful Consolidator Grant applicant will share her experiences with the application and an Advanced Grant laureate, who has served on the ERC evaluation panel, will share experiences of the evaluation process. Attendees can ask questions during the presentations and at the end of the event.

Welcome and introduction to ERC Starting, Consolidator and Advanced Grant funding schemes (also the ERC Synergy funding scheme will be addressed), Ermo Daniëls, UM specialist on ERC funding
