European Research Council

   The European Research Council supports research in the knowledge frontier, as well as innovative ideas in new scientific fields; The ERC wants to encourage competitive non-oriented research in all fields, with the only premise of scientific excellence; ERC principles: • • 1 principal investigator, 1 institution, 1 project & 1 selection criterion: scientific excellence; There are no consortia, networks nor co-financing; • • Projects from all areas are funded; Bottom-up approach; • The principal investigator can be of any nationality, age and find herself in any stage of her scientific career.

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions

    It is the main programme for the professional development of PhDs; The MSCA supports the development of the scientific career and the training of researchers from any discipline, emphasising mobility and the cooperation between companies and academia; scientific career, promoting transnational mobility, intersectorial and scientific discipline transition

MSCA-IF Workshop

Bottom-up approach

on the 26th June!

Remember the mobility requirement: researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date Work programme:

Research Service May 2014

Innovative Training Networks

  


• Increase PhD and Master’s students’ excellence; • Structure research and predoctoral training Scope: PhD students

Expected impact:

• Increase the potential of the predoctoral researchers providing them with new career and academic perspectives; • Achieve cooperation among participant institutions Research Service May 2014

  

Individual Fellowships

Objective: increase the creativity and innovative potential of experienced researchers.


• Individual and transnational actions that are awarded to the best researchers or those who are the most promising; • • Focused on career development, not on experience; Career Restart Panel and Reintegration Panel.

Expected impact: extracting the full potential from researchers and achieve a significant leap in their careers, both in the academic and non academic sectors.
