The European Research Council (ERC) is a leading European funding body supporting excellent investigator-driven frontier research across all fields of science. The ERC offers various outstanding funding opportunities with grant budgets of €1.5 to €3.5 million for individual scientists. ERC calls are open to researchers around the world: all nationalities of applicants are welcome for projects carried out at a host institution in Europe (European Union member states and associated countries). At this session, the main features of ERC funding will be presented, including the new changes implemented in relation to the launch of the 2024 work programme. Furthermore, two invited speakers, a current ERC grantee and a former member of the evaluation panel, will provide an overview of their experience with the ERC evaluation process.
