Horizon 2020: Submission Service and Guidance Document Available for ERC Advanced Grants

ERC Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders of any nationality and any age to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains. Each grant can be worth up to 2.5 million Euros for a period of five (5) years; in some instances, up to 3.5 million Euros can be granted. The deadline for submissions is on Tuesday the 21st of October 2014, 17:00:00 (Brussels local time).

The ERC Advanced Grant funding targets researchers who have already established themselves as independent research leaders in their own right, thus the ERC’s sole evaluation criterion of scientific excellence of the researcher and research proposal.

The grant is open to any field of science, engineering and scholarship. Applicants must be scientifically independent and have a recent research track-record and profile which identifies them as leaders in their respective field(s) of research. The proposed research must be conducted in a public or private research organisation (known as a Host Institution/HI) located in one of the EU Member States or Associated Countries.
