ERC Advanced Grants Information and Proposal Writing Event (Manchester)

​In its capacity as UK National Contact Point for the European Research Council, the UK Research Office, in partnership with the hosting institution, is holding an event for researchers who are interested in applying for the 2017 ERC Advanced Grants call at the University of Manchester in Manchester on Wednesday 24 May 2017.

Aim of the Session
The session will provide participants with a detailed practical overview of the ERC Advanced Grants 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. There will also be ample opportunity to ask questions. Attendance will be free of charge, thanks to support from the University of Manchester.

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 ERC Advanced Grants call. The 2017 Advanced Grants call is expected to open on 16 May 2017 and close on 31 August 2017. Applicants are expected to be active researchers and to have a track record of excellent research. The scheme is designed to support Principal Investigators (PIs) who are already established leaders in their field with a recognised track record of research achievements. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Programme outline
The event at the University of Manchester on 24 May will start at 10:00 and finish by 13:00 (with registration from 09:30). Further information on the venue will be provided to delegates once they have registered. Please note that another Advanced Grants event will take place in London on 18 May.
