Q: Can a Principal Investigator (PI) applying to an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) have a team working with them?
A:

Yes, for ERC SyG, each PI can work with a team and/or collaborators who are either in their own institution or in different organisations.
More information about the ERC-2018-SYG Grant Call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2018.
 
 

Q: Do all of the Principal Investigators (PIs) applying to an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) need to be affiliated to a Host Institution?
A:

Yes, any Principal Investigator (PI) involved in a Synergy Grant (SyG) proposal must be affiliated to a Host Institution established in one of the EU Member States or H2020 Associated Countries for at least the full duration of the project. The Principal Investigators (PIs) must also spend 50% of their time in Europe.
Institutions outside Europe may be involved, and may even receive funding provided that their participation is deemed essential for carrying out the action, but only as additional partners under the heading of one of the European based PIs. In addition, their presence must be well justified in the proposal.
More information about the ERC-2018-SYG Grant Call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2018.
 

Q: How many Principal Investigators (PIs) can apply to an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG)?
A:

For an ERC SyG, minimum two and maximum four Principal Investigators (PIs) can apply.

Q: What are the required profiles of researchers to apply to an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) call?
A:

Any profile as long as the Principal Investigators (PIs) applying to the ERC-2018-SYG call have competitive track records appropriate to their career stage. PIs must then present, as part of the proposal, either an early achievement track-record or a 10-year track-record, whichever is most appropriate for their career stage (cf. Starting, Consolidator, Advanced Grant profiles in the ERC Work Programme 2018).
 

Q: Does the geographical distance of Principal Investigators (PIs)/Host Institutions affect chances for winning an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG)?
A:

No, there are no specific constraints on the type of configuration. Being located in two different countries will not affect the chance of success. For SyG the PIs have to demonstrate convincingly that there will be significant synergies and sufficient time spent together in close collaboration.
