About this programme

The European Research Council (ERC) awards grants, through a challenging European competition, for excellent scientific research across all fields, initiated/driven by investigators. It thus supports  ‘bottom-up’ research without predetermined priorities of a ground-breaking nature.

There are three types of grants which each support another phase in a researcher’s career, going from two years after the award of the PhD to an established research leader (Starting, Consolidator and Advanced grants). The Synergy grants address ambitious research problems with a group of two to four Principal Investigators (PIs) and their teams. The Proof of Concept grant is short-term complementary funding for recipients of the previous four main types of grants.

The 2021 work programme contains three grant types (Starting, Consolidator and Advanced grants) with each its own call for proposals. 

The 2022 work programme includes four calls for four types of ERC grants: Starting, Consolidator, Advanced and Synergy grants plus three calls for complementary funding, two for Proof of Concept grants and a call for the Public Engagement with Research Award.
