Q: Do Principal Investigators (PIs) need to have a PhD degree to apply to an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) call for proposals?
A:

The ERC Synergy Grant (SyG) funding scheme imposes very little eligibility constraints on applicants. A PhD degree is not formally required. However, please be aware that this is an extremely competitive call.
More information about the ERC-2018-SYG Grant Call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2018.
 

Q: For an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG), should the core of the research be organised in the corresponding Host Institution?
A:

There are no specific constraints in this respect. The corresponding Host Institution is the one hosting the corresponding Principal Investigator (PI). As this PI is the 'leader' or 'primus inter pares' for the project, it is expected that a significant portion of the research is carried out there.
More information about the ERC-2018-SYG Grant Call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2018.
 

Q: For an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) call for proposals, should all Host Institutions involved submit a support letter?
A:

No, only a support letter from the corresponding Host Institution is required, i.e. from the institution hosting the corresponding Principal Investigator (PI).
Please, see the Information for Applicants to the Synergy Grant 2018 Call for more details.
 

Q: Which panel should be chosen when applying to an ERC Synergy Grant call (ERC-2018-SyG)?
A:

Applications to a Synergy Grant (SyG) call should indicate only keywords and not panels (cf. ERC Work Programme 2018).
 

Q: Are there Co-investigators in ERC Synergy (ERC-2018-SyG) proposals?
A:

No, the concept of Co-investigator does not exist in the context of a SyG. All Principal Investigators (PIs) have equal status, although there is a Corresponding Principal Investigator (cPI) designated to be the administrative contact with the ERCEA.
More information about the ERC-2018-SYG Grant Call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2018.
