Q: Are there any restrictions on the location of the Host Institutions (HIs) or Principal Investigators (PIs) applying to an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG)?
A:

Principals Investigators (PIs) can work at the same Host Institution (HI), or at different HIs within one country or at HIs based in different countries, as long as they are established in an EU Member State or H2020 Associated Countries.
More information about the ERC-2018-SYG Grant Call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2018.
 

Q: Should a proposal to the call ERC-2018-SyG be only a successful collaboration?
A:

Not only. The ultimate goal of the ERC SyG scheme is to allow for a close and genuine collaborative interaction that will enable transformative research at the forefront of science, capable of yielding unpredictable and ground-breaking scientific results and/or cross-fertilizing disciplines, leading to a result that is more than just the sum of Principal Investigators (PIs)' individual contributions.
More information about the ERC-2018-SYG Grant Call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2018.
 

Q: Are Principal Investigators (PIs) interviewed during the evaluation of the ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) call?
A:

Yes, for Synergy Grants (SyG), all Principal Investigators (PIs) whose proposal has been retained after step 2 will be invited to an interview in Brussels (in the third evaluation step).
 

Q: Is it possible to apply to the ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) call if the same PI also intends to apply to an ERC Starting (StG), Consolidator (CoG) or Advanced Grant (AdG) call?
A:

Similarly to other ERC frontier calls, a Principal Investigator (PI) may submit proposals to different ERC frontier research calls published under the same Work Programme, but only the first eligible proposal will be evaluated. Ineligible or withdrawn proposals do not count against this limit (ERC Work Programme 2018, page 19).
Thus, if a PI applies  to the ERC 2018 SyG call and the proposal is eligible and evaluated, their other application to a StG, CoG or AdG call under the ERC Work Programme 2018, will not be evaluated.
The year in the ERC call ID refers to the relevant ERC Work Programme year. For example, the call ERC-2018-SyG belongs to the ERC Work Programme 2018.
Example:
The ERC AdG 2018 call will not be evaluated if the PI had already applied to the ERC 2018 SyG call and the proposal was considered eligible, even if the call deadlines are in two different calendar years (in 2017 for SyG 2018 call and in 2018 for the AdG 2018 call).
However, it is possible to apply both to the ERC AdG 2017 call and to the ERC 2018 SyG call.
 

Q: If the corresponding Principal Investigator (cPI) of a Synergy Grant (ERC-2018-SyG) proposal is based in the EU, can one of the other PIs be based in a third country?
A:

Although ERC grants are open to researchers from any country in the world, all researchers who apply as Principal Investigators (PIs) have to undertake their ERC-funded research in an EU Member State or H2020 Associated Countries. Specifically, each PI has to spend at least 50% of the full equivalent time in an EU Member State or Associated Country and to devote at least 30% of their total working time to the ERC-funded project.
