FFG Academy Training: "ERC at 3“ online sessions - Preparing a competitive Advanced Grant proposal

A service by the FFG Academy
The FFG Academy offers a string of online sessions to support proposal preparations for the first ERC Advanced Grant Call in Horizon Europe (deadline: 31 August 2021).

With the Advanced Grant, the ERC supports leading, active researchers who have a track-record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years.

All registered participants will receive a link to a recorded overview presentation covering all ERC scientific domains (Physical Sciences and Engineering, Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities) in advance of the domain-specific sessions. This introductory presentation captures the main principles of ERC funding and key features of the Advanced Grant Call 2021.

Three interactive ERC domain-specific online sessions will be held, with the aim to provide a forum to also discuss questions and challenges that may be more specific to certain fields of research.

The following ERC panel members and grantees have kindly agreed to share their experiences and recommendations and answer questions by participants during these sessions:

Please feel free to participate in one, two or all three sessions. Kindly note that the number of participants for the domain-specific sessions is limited, and that priority will be given to researchers who intend to submit an ERC Advanced Grant proposal at an Austrian institution to the 2021 Call or within the next few years.
