    Nearly €2 billion investment in Europe's top researchers.

    The European Research Council (ERC) has pre-announced its 2018 Work Programme and grant competitions with a total budget of €1.86 billion.

    One of the programme's new elements is the reintroduction of Synergy Grants, the funding scheme for groups of 2-4 scientists who can jointly address ambitious research problems. Both the ERC Starting Grants and Synergy Grants calls are set to open on 3 August 2017.

    You can find more information, including the draft Work Programme and the Information for Applicants, in the ERC News.
