The event will address an issue of great concern to the ERC Scientific Council, notably the relative low number and low success rate of applications from your country. The ERC analysis shows that local, institutional support to the ERC applicants is important factor for their final success.

The event will address an issue of great concern to the ERC Scientific Council, notably the relative low number and low success rate of applications from your country. The ERC analysis shows that local, institutional support to the ERC applicants is important factor for their final success. The event will thus try to convene the representatives of national institutions relevant for successful application to the ERC and bring them together with potential ERC candidates, as well as with the ERC Scientific Council members and staff from the ERC Executive Agency, to discuss together the best possible ways of supporting outstanding scientist in your country and help them successfully apply to the ERC.

With the ERC widening European participation events the ERC Scientific Council plans to open a forum for dialogue, exchange of experiences, networking, and learning about good practices among different stakeholders relevant for successful application to the ERC.
