Jump to navigation Jump to search

Researchers in Austria have been quite successful in winning grants of the European Research Council (ERC). These grants have immediately gained high recognition due to their highly competitive nature. There are two major types of grants, the ERC Advanced Grant for established researchers with a typical funding of 2,5 Mio. EUR and the ERC Starting Grant for promising young researchers with a typical funding of 1,5 Mio. EUR. Additionally, the ERC Proof of Concept and ERC Synergy grants have been introduced in 2011 and the ERC Consolidator Grant in 2013. About 100 researchers in Austria have received ERC grants until fall 2013. The previous ERC President Helga Nowotny is from Austria.
