The 2017 European Research Council Consolidator Grants call has been launched with a 9 Feb deadline. Consolidator Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators with 7-12 years of experience since completion of their PhD and at the career stage at which they may still be consolidating their own independent research team or programme. Applicants must demonstrate the ground-breaking nature, ambition and feasibility of their scientific proposal. These are “frontier” research grants operating on a “bottom-up” basis without predetermined themes or priorities.
This is highly competitive but also highly rewarding funding with up to €2 million available per award, covering up to 100% of the eligible direct costs of the research. If you are interested in applying, please contact your Faculty Research Funding and Policy Manager.
