About the event

Take part in the information meeting on the ERC Synergy Grants 2022. We are glad to have the participation of Call Coordinator Agnes Kulcsar from the ERC Executive Agency. Professor Unni Olsbye, one of the PI's in the funded SyG project "CUBE" will share her experiences from applying and executing a Synergy Grant.

The ERC finances individual grants for Principal Investigators (PI) and their teams with groundbreaking ideas. However, sometimes a researcher wants to address a research problem so ambitious, that it cannot be dealt with by one PI alone. The Synergy Grants are for these project ideas. It is expected that apart from displaying scientific excellence, the project will yield an outstanding intrinsic synergetic effect. SyG is open to all disciplines and research fields, and for researchers with Starting, Consolidator or Advanced grant level of experience.

For the budgetary year of 2022, the ERC SyG has a tentative deadline already on 10. November 2021, with the call opening mid-July. 2 to 4 Principal investigators can join forces on a project. They can be based on the same or different institutions. One of the PIs can be based in an institution outside of the EU member states or the associated countries.

More information about the Synergy Grants can be found on the ERC web site.

When the call opens in July, you will be able to find the complete information package. You also find information about the other ERC grant types on the ERC web pages.

The meeting language is English. Parts of the meeting will be recorded.
