The European Research Council (ERC) is a leading European funding body supporting excellent investigator-driven frontier research across all fields of science. ERC calls are open to researchers around the world.  

The ERC offers various different outstanding funding opportunities with grants budgets of €1.5 to €3.5 million for individual scientists. All nationalities and career-stage of applicants are welcome for projects carried out at a host institution in the European Union and its associated countries.

This presentation will focus on how ERC funds research projects in particular in / around the target topics of the conference. The purpose is to emphasize the career opportunities for the researchers, who work at the frontier of chemical science in areas such as physical, analytical and theoretical chemistry, synthetic and material chemistry as well as chemical and material engineering.

We will remind what the eligibility criteria are, and which call might suit your career stage.

If you have a visionary idea, we will give you some tips to design an individual proposal allowing you to build a team aiming at developing and implementing this idea.

If this idea is so broad that it reaches beyond your own expertise, then we will lead you towards the synergy program in which you have to associate with one to three other investigators whose expertise is key to complement yours and bring the project to success.

At this session, the main features of ERC individual and synergy grants will be presented, as well as testimonials from an ERC grantee in the field of Material Sciences.

Young investigators as well as advanced researchers who work at the forefront of their field of expertise are encouraged to attend.
