Euraxess in ASEAN – European Research Council – 2.2BN EUROS for Frontier Research in 2023

The ERC has announced its Work Programme for 2023 with a total budget of around €2.2 billion for grants.

This amount will provide support for more than a thousand top researchers carrying out frontier science across Europe

The ERC is the premier European funding organisation for excellent frontier research. It funds creative researchers of any nationality and age, to run projects based across Europe.
 
The Work Programme also includes a tentative calendar of grant competitions in 2023.

Are you a researcher that wants to address a research problem so ambitious, that can not be dealt with you and your team alone? The Synergy Grants could be for you!

This is an opportunity for a group of two to maximum four Principal Investigators (PIs) – of which one will be designated as the corresponding PI (cPI) – working together and bringing different skills and resources to tackle ambitious research problems. No specific eligibility criteria regarding the academic training are foreseen for ERC Synergy Grants. PIs must present an early achievement track-record or a ten-year track-record, whichever is most appropriate.

Proposals will be evaluated on the sole criterion of scientific excellence which, in the case the ERC Synergy Grants, takes on the additional meaning of outstanding intrinsic synergetic effect.

Deadline is 8 November 2022.
