ERC Consolidator Grants are designed to support researchers who are consolidating their own independent research team or programme. Grantee (with over 7 and up to 12 years of experience since completion of PhD or equivalent and scientific track record showing great promise) must conduct research and spend at least 50% in a host institution (public or private) located in an EU Member State or Associated Country. Excellent research proposal is the only criterion for selection.

Set up in 2007 by the EU, the European Research Council is the first pan-European funding organization for frontier research. It aims to stimulate scientific excellence in Europe by encouraging competition for funding between the very best, creative researchers of any nationality and age. The ERC also strives to attract top researchers from anywhere in the world to come to Europe. It funds young, early-career top researchers ('ERC Starting grants'), already independent excellent scientists ('ERC Consolidator Grants'), and senior research leaders ('ERC Advanced Grants').
Please, note that ERC grants support projects carried out by an individual researcher ('Principal Investigator') who can employ researchers of any nationality as team members. It is also possible to have one or more team members located in a non-European country.
