ERC Grants support 2019/2020 New calendar of events at the UT

Grants from the European Research Council (ERC) support individual researchers of any nationality and age, who wish to pursue high-risk high-gain research in Europe. In support to applicants, the UT organises an ERC general info session and ERC Training every year.


This year's info session will take place on 19 March (13:00-14:15), in preparation to the upcoming ERC calls. ERC National Contact Points Doenja Koppejan and Mariëlle Brouwer (RVO) will inform on the type of grants, eligibility criteria and evaluation process; complementing this information, an ERC-grantee will share personal experiences during grant application.

Registration is now possible.
