ERC Advanced grants webinar


This  webinar on European Research Council (ERC) Advanced grants 2021 call for proposals is organised by the National Contact Points (NCPs) for ERC in Belgium (NCP Federal BENCP-FNRSNCP Flanders) to inform potential applicants and host institutions.

The ERC Advanced Grant call 2021 is expected to open in May (indicative opening date: 20/05/2021) with a deadline on 31 August 2021. The call will be open to established, leading researchers of any nationality and from any field of research (bottom-up approach), with a track-record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years. There is no minimum or maximum age limit. The amount of the grant is up to € 2.5 million for 5 years (or up to €3.5 million in specific cases). More information on ERC Advanced Grants.

During this information session the modalities of the call for proposals will be presented by an ERC Executive Agency staff member and complemented by testimonies of both evaluators and grantees coming from all main domains (Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), Physical and Engineering Sciences (PE) and Life Sciences (LS)).

Due to the measures with regard to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, this info session is completely virtual. Participation to this webinar is free and open to any researcher wishing to apply with a Belgian host institution or any staff member of a Belgian host institution.
