ERC News:

Creation of the ERC

Two types of grants are available through the ERC:

  • ERC Starting Grants
  • ERC Advanced Grants.

Excellence is the sole selection criterion for allocation of these grants and is applied to the principal investigator, but also to the research project and the research environment.
