    The main goal of this event is to inform researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) about their opportunities to apply to the European Research Council (ERC) for one of the prestigious ERC Grants. Participants will learn what it takes to write and submit successful grant applications, and how they can benefit from the SNSF support measures. An ERC grant holder will share his first-hand experiences about winning an ERC grant in the Humanities.
