    ERC Grants

    The ERC Grants awarded by the European Research Council (ERC) are the most prestigious form of European research funding. Providing very substantial funding, the Grants enable awardees to take on complex projects. The Research Council offers different funding schemes for both up-and-coming researchers and established top scientists. Website of the European Research Council
