Workshop for ERC Consolidator Grant candidates

On 8 September, we are inviting candidates to ERC's call for Consolidator Grant for a preparatory workshop.


8 September 2020


9.30-17.00 including breaks


Digital meeting via Zoom

In English


Consolidator Grant candidates will get a personal invitation.

The Swedish Research Council supports researchers applying to the European Research Council's, (ERC), calls in different ways. This workshop is aimed at researchers from Swedish Host institutions who applied for a Consolidator Grant and went on to step 2 of the evaluation process.

The purpose of the work shop is to prepare the candidates for the interview with the ERC panel. The candidates get to listen to recipients from previous years and practice their presentation technique with a professional coach.

ERC Consolidator Grant is for anyone who has recently started a research team and wishes to reinforce their role as a research director (7–12 years after completing a doctorate). Grant amount: up to 2 million EUR for a period of maximum five years.
