Setting up Research Visits through ERC International Arrangement Funding

    United Kingdom, (Virtual)
    UK Research Office


ERC International Arrangement funding supports ERC grantees to host international researchers in their research groups. The ERC has signed cooperation agreements with many research funders throughout the world facilitating international exchange of researchers. Every year ERC Grantees are invited to submit an Expression of Interest to the ERC Executive Agency. Subsequently, international researchers receive information from their national research funder and can make contact with the ERC Grantees based on shared research interests. This webinar explains the cooperation between the ERC and the National Science Foundation (USA). It also describes practical support and information available from UKRO and EURAXESS North  America that supports this form of international research cooperation.
