The ERC has now announced tentative dates (subject to change) for 2022 funding calls. As a reminder, ERC funding is aimed at individual scientists, accepting research across all fields based solely on scientific excellence, with earmarked funding for all career stages.
With Horizon Europe, it will be even more important than before to start planning early. So far in 2021, early career research grant applications are more competitive than ever, with 24% more applications than the last Starting Grant call.
So if you’re involved in interesting scientific research, be sure to save the dates, and plan ahead for a high quality proposal!
