In its capacity as the UK ERC National Contact Point, UKRO is holding an information event for researchers interested in applying for either the European Research Council 2019 Starting or Synergy Grant calls.
The main part of the session will give participants a practical overview of the ERC funding programme, providing a deeper understanding of the proposal format for the Starting Grant call and the key issues they are required to address in planning, writing and costing an ERC proposal in general. After the main session, there will be a presentation on the features unique to the Synergy Grant, explaining the evaluation procedure, how to approach an application and how Synergy Grants differs from the other types of ERC Frontier Grant.
Representatives from the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) will also be present at this session to briefly outline the latest situation with regards to UK applicants' eligibility for these schemes in the context of Article 50 negotiations.
Any member of the University of Oxford can attend this free event but registration is mandatory. If are already registered with an UKRO account you can find the registration page and further event details here (UKRO login needed). Alternatively you can first register for an UKRO account.
