The recording and slides are available on the webpage of the info session

This info session on European Research Council (ERC) Starting and Consolidator grants 2022 calls was organised by the National Contact Points (NCPs) for ERC in Belgium (NCP-FNRS & NCP Flanders) to help applicants in the preparation of their ERC Starting Grant proposal or Consolidator Grant proposal. It was also aimed at researchers who are considering applying in the future.

Due to the beginning of the new framework programme Horizon Europe, the ERC call calendar for 2022 is still a bit delayed. It is nonetheless high time for researchers to start preparing their applications. The ERC Starting Grant call has a tentative closing date on 13/01/2022, whereas the ERC Consolidator Grant call should close on 17/03/2022.

ERC Starting Grant call 2022 is targeting researchers having been awarded a PhD degree between 1 January 2015 to 31 December 2019 (inclusive). ERC Consolidator Grant call 2022 is targeting researchers having been awarded a PhD degree between 1 January 2010 to 31 December 2014 (inclusive). They are the two biggest ERC calls as they jointly account for more than 60% of the ERC 2022 budget.

Participation to the info session was free but restricted to researchers wishing to apply with a Belgian Host Institution, or staff members of Belgian Host Institutions. Registration was mandatory.

PBNv2 - a MSCA ITN in the field of automotive R&D

The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) European Innovative Training Network “PBNv2 - Next generation Pass-By Noise approaches for new powertrain vehicles” started in May 2017. Their research has the shared objective of investigating the possibilities to decrease pass-by noise of vehicles.

The project is a collaboration between 17 research institutions and companies in the European automotive R&D and provides a learning environment for 14 PhD fellows. The Belgian partner is the Noise and Vibration Research Group of KU Leuven, and this project is one of the many Horizon 2020 MSCA Innovative Training Networks that the KU Leuven research group participates in.
