Are you going to apply to the ERC Starting grant or Consolidator grant in 2021? The Research Council and NTNU invites you to attend a course on how to write an application to the European Research Council, ERC. The course is also relevant if you plan to apply to a later deadline.

The tentative deadlines are 9. March for Starting grant and 20. April for Consolidator grant. Starting grant is for researchers with 2-7 years of experience since their PhD, and 7-12 years for Consolidator grant applicants.

You'll find information about the ERC Starting grant and Consolidator grant on the ERC web.

The planned opening dates for the calls are January 12th and 21st. The details of the calls will be published in the ERC Work Programme 2021. It will be published when Horizon Europe has been formally approved by the European Union.
