The ERC grants are highly competitive and an outstanding track record is an important factor of success. As well as the research carried out by the researcher, it is an ambitious program aiming to recognize the best ideas and talents. Multiple types of grants are available within the ERC Work Program, for multiple stages of your career (Starting, Advanced, and Consolidator), a follow-up (Proof of Concept) of your running ERC grant or a consortium grant (Synergy).
