Q: For an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2020-SyG) call for proposals, should all Host Institutions involved submit a support letter?
A:

Yes, unlike in previous Synergy calls for proposals, at submission stage each Host Institution (not only the Corresponding Host Institution) shall provide a support letter to PI(s) hosted by them for at least the duration of the grant. The conditions offered by the Host Institutions, including the 'portability' of the grant, are the subject of a supplementary agreement between the Principal Investigator(s) and their respective Host Institution(s). More information about the ERC-2020-SyG call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2020 and Information for Applicants to the Synergy Grant 2020 Call.

Q: How many Principal Investigators (PIs) can apply to an ERC Synergy Grant (ERC-2020-SyG)?
A:

For an ERC Synergy Grant (SyG), a minimum of two and a maximum of four Principal Investigators (PIs) can apply. More information about the ERC-2020-SyG call is available in the ERC Work Programme 2020.

Q: According to the conditions applied to the ERC frontier research Grants 2020, 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 2020, there are three main    restrictions to be considered for Principal Investigators in this regard:

  1. 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.]
  2. 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.
  3.  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 2020 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.
