ERC Advanced Grant

The ERC Advanced Grants funding scheme supports excellent independent researchers who have a track-record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years. They should be exceptional leaders in terms of originality and significance of their research contributions. ERC Advanced Grants may be awarded up to 2.5 million EUR for a period of five years.
