UKRO, as UK National Contact Point for the European Research Council, is holding two events for academics interested in applying to the next ERC Starting Grants call (which will have an October 2016 deadline). The events will be held at the University of York on Monday 5 September from 13:30 – 17:00 and at King’s College London on Tuesday 6 September 2016 from 10:00 – 13:00. Attendance is free but you must register to confirm your place.
ERC Starting Grants are for early career researchers who completed their PhD between 2-7 years prior to 1 January 2017. The grants are extremely attractive (offering up to € 1.5 million) funding promising researchers with a great track record to undertake an excellent and innovative research project.
