European Research Council grants

ERC grants are high-profile grants awarded by the European Research Council to single researchers in order to fund a fundamental research project of their choosing.

The European Research Council (ERC) has various core grant schemes:

  • ERC Starting Grant, for scientists at the beginning of their career;
  • ERC Consolidator Grant, for scientists who want to establish a research team and develop a success career;
  • ERC Advanced Grant, for experienced scientists who want to pursue a ground-breaking, high-risk project;
  • ERC Synergy Grant.
ULB is home to 47 current or former ERC grant laureates:
23 Starting Grants, 12 Consolidator Grants,
11 Advanced Grants and 1 Synergy Grant
