- ERC requirements
- How to write a successful ERC grant application – The structure of the project description
- ERC feedback - Key things
- Participants write 1-page abstract with project idea

- Participants write a draft proposal
Please contact Thorbjørg Hroarsdottir for further information and registration.
We can offer the following assistance in co-operation with an external consulent:
ERC “Go/No-Go” Package: Since ERC is different than any other grant, proper project proposal outline and orientation is essential for success. We will review the basic project idea and abstract, and provide feedback about its suitability to ERC.
ERC Standard Package: We will review the ERC application to verify that all essential ERC elements are properly addressed. We ensure that research is formatted and presented “by the book” – including whether key issues like “investigator-driven frontier research” and “high risk, high gain” are properly addressed. Pre-evaluation of ERC-proposals ideally take place three months before the deadline - and no later than one month before the deadline.
ERC Deep Dive Package: We will provide an in-depth review of the ERC application, learning the scientific area, studying the PI’s publications, and thoroughly preparing the applicant and guiding her/him through all steps of the grant preparation process – from idea to submission. This package includes an extensive and interactive review of the scientific idea, concept and ERC presentation strategy, panel selection discussion with the PI, relevant ethical considerations and more. The deep-dive package ideally starts six months before the deadline - and no later than three months before the deadline.
