Introduction to the European Research Council programme


The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding to support investigator-driven, frontier research across all fields, based on scientific excellence. The ERC offers 4 core grant schemes: Starting Grants, Consolidator Grants, Advanced Grants and Synergy Grants. With its additional Proof of Concept Grant scheme, the ERC helps grantees to explore the innovation potential of their ideas or research results.
