​European Research Council UK National Contact Point

The ERC National Contact Point is a service for anyone who is currently based in the UK or who wishes to apply with a UK-based organisation for an ERC grant. Services comprise:

  • A query service, which you can contact via telephone or email. We can answer questions on any aspects of the ERC programmes, including questions relating to call dates, eligibility, the application process, results and post-award processes.
  • Telephone: +32 2 289 6121

    Email: erc-uk@bbsrc.ac.uk​​

  • A series of training events for potential applicants to the different schemes. These are held in venues across the UK and will be advertised on this portal​ when they open for registration.

At present, the status of the UK in the EU and therefore also in Horizon 2020 remains unchanged. For updates relating to the implications of Brexit, please consult the UKRO Brexit FAQs.

The ERC UK National Contact Point is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
