ERC Synergy Grant: Key features and proposal success factors

A webinar by the FFG Academy

This webinar will highlight the main features and specifics of the ERC Synergy Grant Call and provide suggestions for a competitive proposal, drawing also on evaluation comments received for the pilot Synergy Grant Calls.

Following an in-depth evaluation of the pilot ERC Synergy Grant calls in 2012 and 2013,  this distinctive and highly competitive funding scheme now celebrates its comeback in the ERC Work Programme 2018.  By a unique combination of 2-4 principal investigators (PI) with complementary skills and resources, ERC Synergy Grant projects should address ambitious research questions in a manner that would not be possible for the individual PIs.

The Synergy Grant aims for transformative research and is open for unconventional approaches and research at the interface of established disciplines.  The funding amounts to maximum 10 mio Euro for 6 years, with the possibility for additional funding of up to 4 mio  Euro in defined exceptional cases.
