Q: According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2019 (ERC-2019-CoG) call, what will happen if the PhD certificate is not submitted together with the proposal?
A:

According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2019 call, as long as no PhD document or equivalent is uploaded in the Funding and Tenders Portal (F&T Portal), it will not be possible to validate/submit the proposal. A warning message will inform the applicant of the missing document. If another document is uploaded instead and the PhD certificate is finally missing in the proposal, the ERCEA may contact the PI and ask for a clarification and the missing document.

For more information, see section 'Eligibility criteria' of the ERC Work Programme 2019.

Q: According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2019 (ERC-2019-CoG) call, which is the date to be considered for the granting of the PhD (or equivalent degree)?
A:

According to the ERC Work Programme 2019, the reference date towards the calculation of the eligibility period should be the date of the actual award according to the national rules in the country where the degree was awarded. The Information for Applicants to Starting and Consolidator Grant 2019 Calls complements that this is "generally, the date of successful defense/viva".

In the case of applicants having been awarded several PhDs, the reference date is the award date of the first PhD.

In case of medical doctor degrees considered equivalent to PhD the certified date of the medical doctor degree completion plus two years is the time reference for calculation of the eligibility time-window.

For more information, see section 'Eligibility criteria' of the ERC Work Programme 2019 and its Annex 2.
