Horizon 2020 call for ERC advanced grants open for proposals
The ERC call for advanced grants is open for proposals and closes on 21 October 2014.
The call targets excellent researchers who are already established leaders with a recognised track record of outstanding research achievements.
Applications may be made in any field of research; however, ERC puts particular emphasis on the frontiers of science. Approximately 44 per cent of funding is awarded to physical sciences and engineering disciplines, 39 per cent to life sciences and 17 per cent to social sciences and humanities.
Applicants may be of any age and nationality and based anywhere in the world, although the research must be carried out in a host institution in an EU member state or associated country.
They should have produced at least 10 publications as senior author or three research monographs, at least one of which must have been translated into another language.
Detailed information on the all and the exact requirements can be found on the ERC funding page.
The maximum funding for ERC advanced grants is 2.5 million euro for a period of five years.
The budget available for this call is 450 million euro.
