Huge funding opportunities available through the European Research Council

14 October 2013

The European Research Council is offering a range of schemes aimed at funding researchers at different career stages across all disciplines.

Starting Grants (for researchers 2-7 years post PhD)
European Research Council Starting Grants aim to support up-and-coming research leaders who are about to establish a proper research team and to start conducting independent research in Europe. The scheme targets promising researchers who have the proven potential of becoming independent research leaders. It will support the creation of excellent new research teams.

Consolidator Grants (7-12 years post PhD)

European Research Council Consolidator Grants are designed to support researchers at the stage at which they are consolidating their own independent research team or programme. The scheme will strengthen independent and excellent new individual research teams that have been recently created.

Advanced Grants (established research leaders)
The European Research Council Advanced Grants targets researchers who have already established themselves as independent research leaders in their own right.
