“ERC at 3“ online sessions by the FFG Academy: Towards a compelling ERC proposal - For Starters and Consolidators

A service by the FFG Academy
The FFG Academy offers a string of interactive online sessions to support researchers in their preparations for a Starting or Consolidator Grant proposal.

With the ERC Starting Grant, the ERC supports talented early-career scientists (minimum 2, maximum 7 years post-PhD defense - as foreseen in the ERC Work Programme 2023) in establishing their scientific independence, often by heading their own research team for the first time. The ERC Consolidator Grant addresses excellent early-career scientists (minimum 7, maximum 12 years post PhD defense) seeking to consolidate their independent research agenda and team.

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 three sessions. This introductory presentation captures the main principles of ERC funding and key features of the Starting and Consolidator Grant Call 2023.

Three interactive ERC domain-specific online sessions will be held, 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 have kindly agreed to share their experiences and recommendations and answer questions by participants during these sessions:

Brigitta Lurger, University of Graz
Georg Kaser, University Innsbruck
Robert Konrat, Max Perutz Labs Vienna
Christa Schleper, University Vienna

Please feel free to participate in one, severall or all domain-specific sessions. Kindly note that the number of participants for the domain-specific sessions is limited, and that priority will be given to researchers planning to submit an ERC Starting or Consolidator Grant proposal at an Austrian institution to the 2023 Call or within the next few years.
