ERC 2020 Advanced Grant: Call Information Webinar (28 May)

The UK Research Office (UKRO), in its capacity as UK National Contact Point for the Horizon 2020 European Research Council (ERC), is holding a webinar for organisations and individuals interested in applying to the 2020 ERC Advanced Grant Call. The call is due to open on 14 May 2020 with a deadline of 26 August 2020. These webinars are intended to replace the NCP information events which usually take place in the UK.

Aim of the Webinar

This webinar will provide participants with a detailed practical overview of the ERC Advanced Grant scheme. Participants should gain a deeper understanding of the proposal format and the key issues they are required to address in planning, writing and costing a proposal. The evaluation procedure and how to approach writing an application will also be explained. There will be ample opportunity to ask questions during the webinar.
Attendance will be free of charge, but registration is required.

Who should attend?

The sessions are aimed at researchers based in, or moving to, the UK who are planning to submit a proposal to the 2020 ERC Advanced Grant call, and the research support staff who will be supporting these applications. The 2020 Advanced Grant call is due to open on 14 May 2020 and close on 26 August 2020. Applicants are expected to be active researchers and to have a track record of excellent research.
