ERC Advanced Grant 2017

The ERC Advanced Grant call for proposals is now open. Deadline: 31 August 2017

About ERC AdG

Advanced Grants are designed to support excellent Principal Investigators at the career stage at which they are already established research leaders with a recognised track record of research achievements.

Successful applicants must demonstrate the ground-breaking nature, ambition and feasibility of their scientific proposal.

Size of ERC AdG

Advanced Grants may be awarded up to a maximum of EUR 2 500 000 for a period of 5 years.

Profile of the Principal Investigator

ERC Advanced Grant Principal Investigators are expected to be active researchers and to have a track record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years which must be presented in the application.

Thus, in most fields, Principal Investigators of Advanced Grant proposals will be expected to demonstrate a record of achievements appropriate to the field and at least matching one or more of the following benchmarks:

  • 10 publications as main author (or in those fields where alphabetic order of authorship is the norm, joint author) in major international peer-reviewed multidisciplinary scientific journals, and/or in the leading international peer-reviewed journals and peer-reviewed conferences proceedings of their respective field;
  • 3 major research monographs, of which at least one is translated into another language. This benchmark is relevant to research fields where publication of monographs is the norm (e.g. humanities and social sciences).
