Q: According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 (ERC-2018-CoG) call, what degrees are considered equivalent to a PhD?
A:

According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 call, in order to be eligible to apply a Principal Investigator must have been awarded a PhD or equivalent doctoral degree. It is recognised that in certain fields some other doctoral titles have the same status and represent variants of the PhD. All of them have similar content requirements. These cases will be examined individually, as part of the ERCEA's decision on eligibility. First professional degrees will not be considered in themselves as PhD-equivalent, even if mentioning the title "Doctor".
For more information, please, consult the ERC policy on PhD and equivalent doctoral degrees in the ERC Work Programme 2018 - Annex 2.
 

Q: According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 (ERC-2018-CoG) call, is a Medical Doctor degree equivalent to a PhD degree?
A:

According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 call, for medical doctors (or applicants holding a degree in medicine), a medical doctor degree will not be accepted by itself as equivalent to a PhD award. To be considered an eligible Principal Investigator, medical doctors (or applicants holding a degree in medicine) need to provide the certificates of both a medical doctor degree and a PhD or proof of an appointment that requires doctoral equivalency (e.g. post-doctoral fellowship, professorship appointment). Additionally, candidates must also provide information on their research experience (including peer reviewed publications) in order to further substantiate the equivalence of their overall training to a PhD. In these cases, the certified date of the medical doctor degree completion plus two years is the time reference for calculation of the eligibility time-window (i.e. 9-14 years past the medical doctor degree for Consolidators).
For more information, see section 'Eligibility criteria' of the ERC Work Programme 2018.
 

Q: According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 (ERC-2018-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 2018 call, as long as no PhD document or equivalent is uploaded in the Participant Portal Submission Service, 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 proposal is not eligible and will not be evaluated.
For more information, see section 'Eligibility criteria' of the ERC Work Programme 2018 .

Q: According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 (ERC-2018-CoG) call, which is the date to be considered for the granting of the PhD (or equivalent degree)?
A:

According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 call, the reference date for calculating the eligibility period should be the date of the actual award according to the national rules in the country where the degree was awarded.
In the case of applicants having been awarded several PhDs, the reference date is the award date of the first PhD.
For more information, see section 'Eligibility criteria' of the ERC Work Programme 2018.

Q: Must the Principal Investigator applying for an ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 (ERC-2018-CoG) choose the appropriate ERC peer review evaluation panel for his/her proposal?
A:

According to the conditions of the ERC Consolidator Grant 2018 call, the applicant must choose a primary evaluation panel and may also indicate a secondary evaluation panel. They should indicate when they believe that their 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 unanimously agree to do so.
Further explanations can be found in the Information for the applicants of the Starting and Consolidator 2018 Grants. The primary panel structure and description is also described in Annex 1 of the ERC Work Programme 2018.
