The Starting Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) supports talented researchers of any nationality with 2-7 years of experience since completion of PhD, a scientific track record showing great promise and an excellent research proposal. Applications can be made in any field of research. Research must be conducted in a public or private research organisation (known as a host institution/HI). It could be the HI where the applicant already works, or any other HI located in one of the EU Member States or Associated Countries. The PI does not need to be employed by the host institution at the time of proposal submission, but a mutual agreement and commitment are necessary if the proposal is successful. The grant provides up to 1.5 million EUR for up to 5 years, plus an additional 1 million EUR for “start-up” costs, including 25% indirect costs.

Applications close on October 15, 2024.
