Webinar - The Starting and Consolidator Grants of the European Research Council
The European Research Council (ERC) supports excellence in frontier research through a bottom-up, individual-based, worldwide competition. The ERC has a budget of €13 billion for the period 2014-2020. The Starting Grants (2-7 years after PhD) and Consolidator Grants (7-12 years after PhD) are open for highly qualified individual researchers from all thematic areas. Grants are awarded for research projects in Europe for up to five years with maximum project budgets ranging from €1.5 million to €2.75 million. This webinar provides an overview on both funding schemes and gives advice on how to write a competitive proposal. The European International Cooperation network for science & technology with Southeast Asia (SEA-EU-NET), in cooperation with the National Contact Point for the European Research Council in Germany and the United Nations University, Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) organize this webinar to inform highly qualified researchers from outside Europe on the possibilities provided by the European Research Council.
