European Research Council (ERC) Advanced Grants

European Research Council (ERC) grants are available to support researchers in carrying out frontier research projects. The European Research Council (ERC) is a European funding initiative, designed to support the best scientists, engineers and scholars in Europe. Its mandate is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-initiated frontier research across all fields of research, on the basis of scientific excellence.
