European Research Council Consolidator Grants
Researchers of any nationality with 7-12 years of experience since completion of PhD (Extensions are possible under certain circumstances — see the latest ERC Work Programme), a scientific track record showing great promise and an excellent research proposal.
Applications can be made in any field of research.
Applications for an ERC grant must be submitted by a single Principal Investigator (PI) in conjunction with and on behalf of their Host Institution, called the applicant legal entity.
Any type of legal entity, including universities, research centres and undertakings can host the PI and his/her team. Legally the Host Institution must be based in one of the EU Member States, or one of the Associated Countries.
ERC grants support projects carried out by an individual researcher who can employ researchers of any nationality as team members. It is also possible to have one or more team members located in a non-European country.
Vacancies for team members interested in joining an ERC led research project, can be published on the Euraxess-Jobs portal.
Before the call is published:
- Find out which ERC grant and which call is suitable for you.
- Identify the Host Institution and team members you would like to work with. (see also the online research partner search services)
- Contact the National Contact Point (NCP) in your country for support.
Consolidator Grants may be awarded up to € 2 million for a period of 5 years. However, an additional € 0.75 million can be made available to cover eligible “start-up” costs for researchers moving from a third country to the EU or an associated country and/or the purchase of major equipment and/or access to large facilities.
Deadline for submission: February 7, 2019.
