ERC calls 2021
Are you interested in the opportunities provided by the European Research Council (ERC) to (young) Brazilian and Latin American and the Caribbean researchers?
Read our guide:
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').
With its Synergy Grants, the ERC also supports groups of two to maximum four Principal Investigators (PIs) working together and bringing different skills and resources to tackle ambitious research problems.
LAC and the ERC
Read interviews we held with LAC researchers funded by the ERC at http://bit.ly/LACandtheERC
You'll aslo find intervews with LAC researchers who were hired in ERC teams to do their PhDs or post-doc and with others who went on short-term stays under the implementing arrangements between the European Comission and their countries.
