Update of 22-02-2021: consult this webpage for the most recent information about the ERC 2021 calls

The first ERC Calls in 2021 will be delayed due to the late adoption of the EU Budget 2021-2027 and the Horizon Europe programme.

Prospective applicants should be aware that the Calls due to open in January will be rescheduled to the earliest possible date in 2021, in order to preserve the Call calendar that was initially foreseen as much as possible. We hope to be able to provide further information around mid-January.

For the time being, the Proof of Concept grant scheme is not included in the Draft 2021 ERC Work Programme. Specific information will be provided on some possible modifications to the scheme that may be made by the Scientific Council.
