Are you a scientist who wants to consolidate your independence by establishing a research team and continuing to develop a success career in Europe? The ERC Consolidator Grant could be for you. You can also apply if you have recently created an independent, excellent research team and want to strengthen it.

Funder deadline: 7th February 2019
Research Services deadline: 31st January 2019 (TBC)
Law Faculty deadline for first draft for review: 10th January 2019.
Law Faculty deadline for initial expression of interest: 4th January 2019.

Consolidator Grants may be awarded up to € 2 million for a period of 5 years. (pro rata for projects of shorter duration). However, an additional € 0.75 million can be made available to cover eligible “start-up” costs for researchers moving from a third country to the EU or an associated country and/or the purchase of major equipment and/or access to large facilities.

An ERC grant can cover up to 100% of the total eligible direct costs of the research plus a contribution of 25% of the total eligible costs towards indirect costs.

This is for Principal Investigators who are between 7 and 12 years from their PhD.
