ONLINE: Masterclass Writing Successful ERC Advanced Grants, Call 2020

The upcoming deadline for submitting an ERC Advanced Grant is scheduled of August 26,  2020.

The current circumstances, where we are all more or less in quarantine, provide an excellent opportunity to order your thoughts with regard to new directions in your research. What have you recently observed that could take your field to a new level of understanding?
Our online material (see table below) combines our understanding of How to Write an ERC Proposal.

In this entirely online training, we follow the ERC Template and, before diving into it, we dissect the work program, in particular its objectives and the evaluation questions and procedure.The ERC selection criteria applied by each panel uses terms which have become familiar jargon, such as: important challenge, novel concept, scientific approach and feasibility. This online training will explain in detail not only what these terms mean under the ERC umbrella but also how the ERC panel members use these terms to discuss, assess and select project proposals.

This set up will supply you with the necessary knowledge to write a successful ERC proposal. It will be an invaluable aid in understanding the ERC standards and getting one step closer to obtaining an ERC grant.
