Funding and Grants
European Research Council (ERC) grants support individual researchers of any nationality and age who wish to pursue their frontier research. The ERC encourages in particular proposals that cross disciplinary boundaries, pioneering ideas that address new and emerging fields and applications that introduce unconventional, innovative approaches.
The ERC has developed three main funding schemes and two additional smaller schemes. Here you can find out more about them.
