Q: May a Principal Investigator (PI) whose proposal was evaluated as category A or category B at step 3 in the ERC 2019 Synergy (SyG) call submit a proposal an ERC SyG 2019 call?
A:

Yes, a Principal Investigator (PI) whose proposal was evaluated as category A or category B at step 3 in the 2018 Synergy (SyG) call may submit a proposal to the 2019 SyG call.

Further details in the ERC Work Programme 2019, section Restrictions on submission of proposals.

Q: May a Principal Investigator (PI) whose proposal was unsuccessful (not category A) in ERC StG/CoG/AdG 2018 or 2017 call submit a proposal to the ERC SyG 2019 call?
A:

A Principal Investigator (PI) whose proposal was evaluated as:

  • category C at step 1 in the 2017 Starting (StG), Consolidator (CoG) or Advanced (AdG) calls, or;
  • category B at any step in the 2018 StG, CoG or AdG calls

may submit a proposal to the 2019 Synergy Grant (SyG) call.

Further details in the ERC Work Programme 2019, section Restrictions on submission of proposals.

Q: Under call ERC-2019-SyG, what are the restrictions for the (re-)submission of an ERC Synergy Grant?
A:

Please consult the section Restrictions on submission of proposals of the ERC Work Programme 2019.

Please note that the restictions apply to each of the Principal Investigators (PIs) and not only the corresponding Principal Investigator (cPI).

Q: Is it possible to apply to the ERC Synergy Grants (ERC-2019-SyG) for a Principal Investigator (PI) who holds an ongoing ERC grant?
A:

A Principal Investigator (PI) can submit a proposal to the SyG call for proposal if their existing ERC project ends no more than two years after the SyG call deadline (cf. ERC Work Programme 2019, section Restrictions on submission of proposals). For the SyG 2019 call, this means that the ongoing Grant has to end before 8 November 2020.

A PI may hold only one ERC grant at any time. A new frontier research project can only start after the duration of the project fixed in a previous frontier research grant agreement has ended (cf. ERC Work Programme 2019). These eligibility requirements regarding grantees are the same as for the other frontier research grants.

Q: Under call ERC-2019-SyG, where is it possible to find information on the ERC Synergy Grants?
A:

The information about the ERC Synergy Grants (SyG) can be found in the ERC Work Programme 2019, in the Information for Applicants to the Synergy Grant 2019 Call, through the Participant Portal, in the Information Package of the submission webpage for the relevant call and through the ERC website.

Q: Should the applicant provide the names and the Curriculum Vitae of the team members in the proposal for the ERC Starting Grant 2019 (ERC-2019-STG) call?
A:

The CVs of individual team members should not be included. Although it is not mandatory to provide the names of individual team members, the proposal should describe the composition of the team that will carry out the proposed activities.

Further explanations can be found in the Information for the applicants of the Starting and Consolidator 2019 Grants.

Q: According to the conditions of the ERC Starting Grant 2019 (ERC-2019-STG) call, is it possible to choose ERC panels from different domains?
A:

For the ERC Starting Grant 2019, the applicant must choose a primary evaluation panel and may also indicate a secondary evaluation panel. He/she should indicate when he/she believes that his/her proposal is of a cross-panel or cross-domain nature. Further explanations can be found in the Information for the Applicants to the Starting and Consolidator Grant 2019 Calls. The primary panel structure and description is also described in Annex 1 to the ERC Work Programme 2019.

Q: Do peer reviewers receive all parts of a proposal in the case of the ERC Starting Grant 2019 call (ERC-2019-STG)?
A:

For the ERC Starting Grant 2019, Step 1 of the peer review evaluation process is based only on Part B1 only (the extended synopsis, the Principal Investigator's CV and the track record) and peer reviewers do not have access to the full research proposal. At Step 2, the peer reviewers base their assessment on the complete versions of the retained proposals – Part B1 and Part B2 (the scientific proposal). Please note that experts do not have access to any supporting documentation during the evaluation.

For more information on the evaluation process, please refer to the ERC Work Programme 2019 (section 'Evaluation procedure and criteria').

Q: Must the Principal Investigator applying for an ERC Starting Grant 2019 (ERC-2019-STG) choose the appropriate ERC peer review evaluation panel for their proposal?
A:

According to the conditions of the ERC Starting Grant 2019 call, the applicant must choose a primary evaluation panel and may also indicate a secondary evaluation panel. He/she should indicate when he/she believes that her/his proposal is of a cross-panel or cross-domain nature.

In most cases the proposal will be evaluated by the primary panel indicated by the applicant. However, if the scope of a proposal does not correspond to the expertise of the primary panel, the proposal can be reallocated to another panel, if the panel chairs of the original and the new panel agree to do so.

Q: According to the conditions applied to the ERC frontier research Grants 2019, can a researcher participate as PI in more than 1 ERC frontier research proposal at the same time? Is it possible to receive funding for more than 1 participation in such case?
A:

According to the conditions applied to the ERC frontier research Grants 2019, there are three main restrictions to be considered for Principal Investigators in this regard:

  • A researcher may participate as Principal Investigator [Including all Principal Investigators supported under the Synergy Grant] in only one ERC frontier research project at any one time [NB A new frontier research project can only start after the duration of the project fixed in a previous frontier research grant agreement has ended.]
  • A researcher participating as Principal Investigator in an ERC frontier research project may not submit a proposal for another ERC frontier research grant, unless the existing project ends no more than two years after the call deadline
  • A Principal Investigator may submit proposals to different ERC frontier research grant calls published under the same Work Programme, but only the first eligible proposal will be evaluated.

These restrictions are specified in the ERC Work Programme 2019 and may be modified in future work programmes by the ERC Scientific Council in light of experience.

Please note however that it is possible to participate in more than one ERC grant as a team member.
