In our EURAXESS Worldwide Tutorial series we are publishing practical advice for mobile researchers. Today, we are zooming in on aplying for an ERC (European Research Council) Grant with advice by Fernando Maestre, a Spanish researcher who successfully applied not once but twice. This article has been published on his blog entry, accessible here.
The author is Director of the Dryland Ecoloy & Global Change Lab at Universidad Rey Juan Carlos and was awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2009 and an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2014.
Here he shares his journey towards an ERC grant including tips and advice for fellow researchers.
