International Development Research @ Cambridge

 

European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants are designed to support early career researchers with 2-7 years of experience since completion of PhD.

Eligiblity

  • Applications can be made in any field of research
  • The ERC's grants operate on a 'bottom-up' basis without predetermined priorities.

Location

Level of funding

Starting Grants may be awarded up to € 1.5 million for a period of 5 years. (pro rata for projects of shorter duration). However, an additional € 0.5 million can be made available to cover eligible “start-up” costs for researchers moving from a third country to the EU or an associated country and/or the purchase of major equipment and/or access to large facilities.

An ERC grant can cover up to 100% of the total eligible direct costs of the research plus a contribution of 25% of the total eligible costs towards indirect costs.
