Luxinnovation ERC Info Day

Date: 28/07/2017

The prestigious grants of the European Research Council (ERC) aim to stimulate scientific excellence in Europe by funding the very best and most creative researchers. In view of the forthcoming submission dates for ERC Starting Grand and Consolidator Grant proposals (17 October 2017 and 15 February 2018, respectively), Luxinnovation, the National Contact Point for Horizon 2020, is organising an ERC Info Day. The objective is to provide you with inside knowledge on how to write and defend an excellent project proposal with good chances of success.

Featured speakers include past and current experts on the ERC’s Life Sciences (LS), Physical Sciences and Engineering (PE) and Social Sciences and Humanities (SH) panels, ERC grantees who have obtained multiple ERC grants and specialised consultants. They will in particular aim to answer the following questions:
 - How can you tell whether you are ready to apply for an ERC grant?
 - How can you move from a Starting Grant to a Consolidator or Advanced Grant?
 - What will make your proposal stand out from the crowd?
 - How can you best prepare for the grant interview?

A detailed programme will be available shortly.

The Info Day targets current and future ERC grant candidates as well as other promising principal investigators. In order to facilitate your exchange with other participants, the event will end with a networking cocktail.

Please register by e-mail to by 1 September 2017.
 The number of participants is limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
