ERC grants at the University of Coimbra
The European Research Council (ERC) was created in 2007 by the European Union (EU) to fund scientists of excellence and their creative ideas.
The fundamental activity of the ERC is to provide attractive, long-term funding to support excellent investigators and their research teams to pursue ground-breaking, high-gain/high-risk research.
Main ERC principles:
One researcher, one host institution, one project
Any field of research
Researchers from anywhere in the world, of any age and career stage
No consortia, no networks, no co-financing
Currently, the ERC is a key strand of Horizon Europe, the EU Program for Research and Innovation.
Several researchers from the University of Coimbra were awarded an ERC grant.
