The ERC Consolidator Grant, a European grant of excellence
As part of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation program, the ERC Consolidator grant finances exploratory research projects on an innovative theme for a duration of 5 years for a budget of approximately €2 million.
Intended for researchers with 7 to 12 years of experience after their doctorate, this scholarship supports promising scientists who wish to form or consolidate their research team. With a very high level of competitiveness, the ERC Consolidator Grant call for projects rewards projects of excellence on ambitious and risky research topics.
