ERC Starting Grants Information and Proposal Writing Event - Edinburgh, 26 July

In its capacity as UK National Contact Point for the European Research Council, the UK Research Office, in partnership with the University of Edinburgh, is holding an event for researchers who are interested in applying for the 2018 ERC Starting Grant  call, at the University of Edinburgh on Wednesday 26 July 2017.

Aim of the Session

The session will provide participants with a detailed practical overview of the ERC Starting 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. There will also be ample opportunity to ask questions. 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 ERC Starting Grant call. The 2018 Starting Grant call is expected to open on 18 July 2017 and close on 17 October 2017, although these dates are still provisional and will be confirmed with publication of the 2018 ERC Work Programme in July 2017. Applicants are expected to be active researchers and to have a track record of excellent research. To be eligible for the 2018 call, the PI must be 2-7 years from their PhD on 1 January 2018, which is extendable in certain limited cases.

Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Programme outline

The event at the University on 26 July 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 an additional Starting Grant event will take place in London on 19 July.
