The ERC selection criteria applied by the panels use terms which have become familiar jargon, such as important challenge, novel concept, scientific approach, and feasibility. Most of these terms are also used by other funding agencies but they are interpreted and applied differently. We will explain in detail not only what these terms mean and imply in the context of ERC, but also how the various ERC panel members use these terms to discuss, assess and select project proposals. We will also discuss finding the balance between ambitious objectives / new concepts and feasibility and the panel specifics concerning the quality of the CVs and track-record of ERC grantees.
Our two-part webinar provides a roadmap to submission tackling stumbling blocks PIs might find in writing their ERC grant proposals:
the morning session will focus on creating the right mindset for submitting a proposal, covering the ERC objectives and evaluation criteria, what the panels expect, how to strategically approach the design of the project, and how to generate the convincing scientific argumentation that will allow the reviewers to understand the feasibility of your ambitious project;
the afternoon session will guide the participants systematically through the different parts of the proposal template, addressing the key elements for writing the grant proposal.
