Scientific Officer ERC
|The European Research Council is the first pan-European funding body for frontier research, set up in 2007 to substantially strengthen and shape the European research system. |
The ERC funding schemes are open to top researchers of any nationality or age who wish to carry out their research in a public or private research organisation located in one of the 28 EU Member States or in associated countries. There are three core funding schemes:
-Starting Grants (grants up to €1,5 million for five years);
-Consolidator Grants (grants up to €2 million); and
-Advanced Grants (grants up to €2.5 million).
The presentation at the 18th General Meeting of the European Association of Social Psychology will introduce the European Research Council and explain, from a practical perspective, the characteristics of the Starting, Consolidator and Advanced Grants calls. The presentation will count with the advice and experiences from two ERC grantees - Thomas Webb from Sheffield University and Sonja Utz from Tuebingen University who will share with prospective applicants their experiences in applying and being funded by the ERC.
