ERC laureates at FSE

The European Research Council (ERC) awards grants to excellent researchers, thus stimulating groundbreaking research in Europe.

  • ERC Starting Grants: Support talented young researchers in setting up a research team and starting an independent research project.
    Grants up to EUR 1.5 million for 5 years
  • ERC Consolidator Grants: Meant for scientists who want to consolidate their independence by establishing a research team or who have recently created an independent, excellent research team and want to strengthen it.
    Grants up to EUR 2 million for 5 years
  • ERC Advanced Grants: Open to established academics of all nationalities and all ages. An ERC grant enables these researchers to start bold, groundbreaking research and thus open up new avenues in their field of study.
    Grants up to EUR 2.5 million for 5 years
  • ERC Proof of Concept Grants: Help ERC laureates link their research to the market.
    Lump Sum Grant of EUR 150.000
