ERC Grants

ERC Research Grant Awards and Projects

The best-known European science prizes are the ERC Grants, which are awarded by the European Research Council (ERC).

In this way, the European Research Council supports top scientists in funding basic research and visionary projects, as well as in developing new interdisciplinary areas of knowledge.

Funding categories include the ERC Starting Grant for early career researchers whose PhDs were awarded between two and seven years ago, the newly established ERC Consolidator Grant, which is aimed at researchers whose PhDs were awarded between seven and twelve years ago, and the ERC Advanced Grant, which is aimed at outstanding established researchers.
