The aim of the webinar is to encourage researchers to apply, offering them the right information, but also introducing them to ERC awardees who have already gone through the process. From the people who organise calls and evaluate proposals, to successful grantees, participants will have the chance to get first-hand information and advice on the preparation of a successful proposal.

The event includes various interesting speeches from national representatives and presentations as well as Q&A sessions where participants will be able to ask questions directly to the speakers.
