The webinar co-organised by the National Centre for Research and Development (NCBR) together with the ERC will take place on 14th of December 2021! We will keep adding information to the agenda as we approach the event, but please register now to secure your spot. The webinar will also include live Q&A sessions and participation of ERC grantees to share their experiences. You will find the webinar program and registration link here.
What will the webinar cover?
In the webinar we will tell you about the ERC funding opportunities available for researchers interested in working in Poland, how to apply for a grant and explain how funding applications are evaluated. You will learn first-hand from current ERC grantees about their experience applying for grants and their best advice to applicants.
Prof. Andrzej Jajszczyk, Vice-President of the European Research Council and Chair of the Working Group on Widening European Participation will explain how the ERC is helping to strengthen the participation of researchers in ERC calls from Europe less research-performing regions.
The webinar will have a live Q&A session!
Did you know this about the ERC?
The European Research Council funds creative researchers of any nationality and age, to run projects based across Europe. The ERC offers four core grant schemes: Starting Grants, Consolidator Grants, Advanced Grants and Synergy Grants. With its additional Proof of Concept Grant scheme, the ERC helps grantees to bridge the gap between their pioneering research and early phases of its commercialisation. Researchers from anywhere in the world can apply for ERC grants provided the research they undertake will be carried out in an EU Member State or Associated Country. If you are moving to Europe (EU Member State or Associated Country), you can apply for additional funding, which can total up to €2.5 million for a Starting Grant, €3 million for a Consolidator Grant and €3.5 million for an Advanced Grant.
What type of projects does the ERC fund?
Research projects funded by the ERC can last up to five years and can cover frontier research in any scientific domain, including social sciences, humanities and interdisciplinary studies. The grants may help both emerging research leaders ('ERC Starting Grants' and 'ERC Consolidator Grants') and already well-established and recognised scientists ('ERC Advanced Grants').
