Opportunities for researchers from India to visit an ERC team


ERC Webinar

The European Research Council (ERC) established in 2020 an international agreement to foster mobility and cooperation with the Indian Council of Social Science Research (ICSSR) and Science and Engineering Research Board (SERB).

This initiative gives the possibility to top researchers supported by ICSSR and SERB to join ERC research teams based in Europe for up to 2 months. These arrangements are part of the ERC’s global outreach strategy that aims to make Europe a hub for research talent.

This webinar aims to explain to researchers supported by ICSSR and SERB the procedures for applying, eligibility criteria, and what is provided, including salary, travel costs, health insurance. A researcher from India who took part in this ERC-led initiative in the past will provide a testimonial of her experience.
