List of European Research Council grants awarded to Norwegian institutions

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Researchers in Norway 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 86 researchers in Norway have received ERC grants until fall 2018.
