ERC Synergy Grant
The ERC Synergy Grant is part of the European Research Council (ERC). 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 recognise the best ideas and talents.
Subsidy: max. €10,000,000 + additional €4,000,000 in specific cases (moving, purchase of major equipment or access to large facilities)
Total budget: €350,000,000 (for 2020)
Funding rate: 100%
Deadlines: New call expected in 2021, deadline expected in Q4 2021
Project duration: 6 years
Consortium: ERC Synergy Grants are intended to enable minimum two to maximum four Principal Investigators. Applications are expected from a group of innovative and active Principal Investigators and must present an early achievement track-record or a 10-year track-record whichever is most appropriate for their career stage (ERC Starting, Consolidator or Advanced Grant profiles)
Scope: The Synergy Grant aims to bring together complementary skills, knowledge, and resources in new ways. In order to jointly address ambitious research problems, it addresses ambitious research questions in any field that can only be answered by the coordinated work of a small group of 2-4 principal investigators.
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).
