Advanced Grants track-record of

significant researchachievements in the

last 10 yearsup to € 2.5 Mio

for 5 years

Proof-of-Concept bridging gap between research - earliest

stage of marketable innovation up to €150,000 for ERC grant holders

ERC offers independence, recognition & visibility• - a research topic of own choice, with a team of own choice• - financial autonomy for 5 years• - to negotiate with host institution the best conditions of

work• - top team members (EU and non-EU) and collaborators• - portability of grant (to move with the grant to any place

in Europe if necessary)• - to attract additional funding and gain recognition
