    Confirmed information on all timelines and conditions of ERC grants with deadline in 2015 are now available

    Indicative information on the ERC calls closing in 2015 had already been included in the Work Programme 2014. The now published Work Programme 2015 confirms the following deadlines:

    Starting Grant: 3 February 2015
    Consolidator Grant: 12 March 2015
    Advanced Grant: 2 June 2015

    Additionally, 3 deadlines are now set for Proof of Concept proposals: 5 February, 28 March and 1 October 2015.
    Furthermore, the Work Programm features a call for a support action on outreach of ERC projects.
    Major changes to previous Work Programmes include:
    -stricter resubmission rules applying to researchers having submitted a proposal to the ERC in 2014 (p. 19): Those with proposals evaluated as category B and C are not eligible in 2015. The latter are also not eligible in 2016.
    -the reference date for the calculation of the eligibility time window is no longer the call publication date, but 1 January 2015.

    Note that researchers can only apply for an ERC grant with a Swiss host institution if Switzerland gets associated to at least the relevant part of Horizon 2020 by the time of the call deadline. Please consult our website for the latest information on issues of Swiss associaton to Horizon 2020.
