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.
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.
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:
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.
