ERC Synergy Grant Information and Proposal Writing Event, London

In its capacity as UK National Contact Point for the European Research Council, the UK Research Office, in partnership with University College London (UCL), is holding an event for researchers who are interested in applying for the 2018 ERC Synergy Grant call, at UCL in London on Wednesday 20 September 2017.

Aim of the Session

The session will provide participants with a detailed practical overview of the ERC Synergy 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 Synergy Grant call. The 2018 Synergy Grant call opened on 3 August 2017 and will close on 14 November 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 application for a Synergy Grant should be made by 2-4 Principal Investigators with complementary skills, knowledge and resources, in order to jointly address ambitious research problems. Principal Investigators must demonstrate the synergies, complementarities and added-value that could lead to breakthroughs that would not otherwise be possible if the individual Principal Investigators worked alone.

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

Programme outline

The event will be hosted by UCL on 20 September and 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. The event will include a speaker from the European Research Council Executive Agency and a Case Study from a Synergy Grant holder.

Please note that an additional Synergy Grant event will take place in Liverpool on 27 September.

UKRO would like to thank UCL, colleagues from the ERC Executive Agency, the case study speaker, and the event participants.
