ERC 2021 Starting Grant Information and Proposal Writing Webinar Series

Organised by European Research Council


Are you preparing an ERC Proposal?

UKRO is organising a two-part webinar series for researchers who are interested in applying for the 2021 ERC Starting Grant call, which has a provisional submission deadline of 24 March 2021.

The overall aim of this webinar series is to provide participants with detailed, practical information about the ERC Starting Grant scheme. Participants should gain a deeper understanding of the proposal format and the key issues they are required to address in planning, writing and costing a proposal. The evaluation procedure and how to approach writing an application will also be explained.

There will be ample opportunity to ask questions during the webinars.

Attendance will be free of charge, but registration for each webinar is required.
