ERC is EU's arena for supporting excellent and novel research initiated by researchers' ideas. The grant is individual and gives researchers the opportunity to build their own team. ERC is looking for the most talented researchers in all stages of their career, and offers very good conditions for doing research projects. 


The seminar is aimed at researchers who plan to apply for ERC Starting or Consolidator grants in 2021. You will hear ERC grantees at the Faculty of Medicine who share their experiences with the ERC. You will also get an update with regard to the next calls.
