FFG Academy: Striking Synergies - Preparing a competitive ERC Synergy Proposal

A service by the FFG Academy
In an exceptional combination of two to four principal investigators (PI) with complementary skills and resources, ERC Synergy Grant projects should address ambitious research questions in a way 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.  

How do ERC reviewers go about assessing Synergy projects? What are ingredients of a competitive proposal? Thomas Klar (Johannes Kepler University Linz) and Jörg Schmiedmayer (Technical University Vienna / Austrian Academy of Sciences) will share their experiences as Synergy Grant Panel Members. The session will also discuss examples taken from a successful Synergy Grant proposal.
