ERC Advanced Investigator Grant Call for Proposals (ERC-2012-AdG)

In November, the European Commission published call for proposals for the ERC Advanced Investigators Grants, with the aim to encourage substantial advances at the frontier of knowledge by supporting excellent, leading advanced investigators to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk/high-gain research. Funding available for the call will be distributed to research projects in three major domains as follows: 

  • Physical Sciences & Engineering (44%); 
  • Life Sciences (39%); 
  • Social Sciences & Humanities (17%).

The minimum number of participants implies at least one independent legal entity established in one of the EU member states, or one of the associated countries. Excellence is the sole criterion of evaluation. For more detailed information about the call, please consult the call fiche and call documentation on the European Commission’s Participant Portal.
