ERC Grant Holder

The European Research Council (ERC) is the funding organization of the European Union. Each year, it selects research proposals from researchers of all nationalities whose projects are carried out in Europe.

Starting Grants provide funding of up to 1.5 million euros to excellent early-career researchers for a period of five years.
ERC Consolidator Grants are awarded to researchers seven to twelve years after completion of their doctorate. The research must be carried out in a public or private research institution in an EU member state or associated country.

The Advanced Grant supports experienced excellent researchers with up to 2.5 million euros over a maximum period of five years.
