Online introduction seminar on how to successfully apply for ERC Starting Grant & Consolidator Grant with Katharina Spannhake from KoWi.

In this informational event you will learn more about the funding scheme and get some insights into the application procedure. There will be also time for your questions.

The European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations (KoWi) provides information on funding opportunities for researchers in Horizon Europe, among others regarding ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants (https://www.kowi.de/en/kowi/about-kowi/about-kowi-1/about-kowi-2.aspx).

The EU has been funding basic and frontier research in Europe through the European Research Council (ERC) since 2007. Special features of ERC funding include, in particular, scientific autonomy in the design of the funding lines, the thematic openness of the calls and the funding of individual researchers. In Horizon Europe, the ERC is  located within the first pillar named "Excellent Science". Researchers of any nationality and from all scientific disciplines are eligible to apply to the ERC, which provides several funding lines with different target groups, among others:

  • ERC Starting Grants for researchers in a time window of 2 - 7 years after the PhD

  • ERC Consolidator Grants for researchers in a time window of 7 - 12 years after the PhD
