ERC releases a new video ‘Step by step to ERC grants

ERCIf you are considering submitting a proposal to the European Research Council (ERC) then this latest film, released yesterday by the ERC, will give you an overview of the schemes and what the ERC are looking for.

ERC Grants support individual researchers of any nationality and age who wish to pursue their frontier research. The ERC encourages in particular proposals that cross disciplinary boundaries, pioneering ideas that address new and emerging fields and applications that introduce unconventional, innovative approaches.

The film is just over 5 minutes long (5.20munites) so will not take up much time and will help break down the comprehensive guidance found on their website and call documents.

The film can be found here: ‘Step by Step to ERC Grants

Call for Individual Fellowships under Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions opens today

Individual Fellowships from the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) will award experienced scientists (postdocs) who want to strengthen their career through mobility. The MCSA offer funding schemes for moving and working at a host institution within or outside Europe. Candidates of any nationality can participate.

Only the country of the institution where the candidate will work is determinant. In that context, and following recent political developments, please note that Switzerland is currently considered as a Third Country and Swiss institutions cannot host MSCA fellowships.

For questions, please contact Research & Enterprise. The 2014 budget for Individual Fellowships under MSCA is €240.5 millions.

The deadline is 11 September 2014.
