The UK Research Office, in partnership with hosting institutions, is holding two events for researchers who are interested in applying for the 2018 ERC Consolidator Grant call. The events are scheduled as follows:
- Kings College, London, Tuesday 21 November, 09.30-12.30
- Leeds University, Leeds, Wednesday 29 November, 14.00-17.00
Further information and registration are available via the links above and places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The sessions are aimed at researchers based in the UK who are planning to submit a proposal to the ERC Consolidator Grant call.
The 2018 Consolidator Grant call opened on 24 October 2017 and will close on 15 February 2018. Applicants are expected to be active researchers and to have a track record of excellent research. To be eligible for the 2018 call, the PI must be 7-12 years from their PhD on 1 January 2018, which is extendable in certain limited cases.
Those Northumbria staff who are considering applying should contact their Research Funding and Policy Manager in the first instance.
