On 16 May 2017, the European Research Council (ERC) announced that it will re-launch its ERC Synergy Grant Scheme.
The perspective is to fund 25 to 30 projects in 2018, with grants of maximum €10M for up to 6 years. The scheme is open to all researchers from anywhere in the world, based in Europe or in an Associated Country. It is expected that the call will be published on 19 July 2017, with a deadline of the 14 November 2017.
The ERC Synergy Grant scheme, ran under two pilot calls in 2012 and 2013. The aim of the Synergy Grants is to address ambitious research questions that can only be answered by the coordinated work of a small group of two to four principal investigators and their teams, bringing together their complementary skills, knowledge and resources.
