EURAXESS Australia & New Zealand and the European Research Council (ERC), bring to you a webinar on ERC funding opportunities, with a focus on the coming Starting Grant call.

The ERC is the premier European funding organisation for excellent frontier research. It supports investigator-driven frontier research across all fields. It awards research grants to scientists and scholars from all over the world, both early-career and senior researchers, carrying out their ambitious research projects in all scientific disciplines in Europe.

This information session highlights how the ERC supports top researchers from anywhere in the world. Participants will learn about the different ERC Funding Schemes available and how to prepare a competitive application. The session will also entail information on existing bilateral schemes (Implementing Arrangements) between the ERC and Australia.

This session is directed at post-doctoral researchers and established researchers (PhD + 2 years experience) of all disciplines and all nationalities.
