The 2017 call for ERC Consolidator Grants is expected to open on 20 October 20116 and close on 9 February 2017.
The grants are aimed at researchers with 7-12 years post-PhD experience, and are designed to support the development independent research leaders. Grants are worth up to €2m over 5 years. Applicants should have an appropriate track record of research and publishing.
UKRO is hosting two information/grant writing events in the run up to the call. The first is at the University of Glasgow on 26 October, the second is yet to be announced and will be in London.
