    Confirmed information on upcoming ERC calls available now.

    A total of €1.67 billion will be available for grants to top researchers.

    Starting Grant (for researchers 2-7 years after PhD): Deadline 17 November 2015
    Consolidator Grant (for Researchers 7-12 years after PhD): Deadline 2 February 2016
    Advanced Grant (for established senior research leaders): Deadline 1 September 2016

    Additionally, 3 deadlines are set for Proof of Concept proposals: 16 February, 26 May and 4 October 2016. 

    The main change compared to the Work Programme 2015 is a relative softening of the resubmission rules: Applicants who scored B at the second evaluation step in a call under Work Programme 2015 can reapply with a call of Work Programme 2016, while under the 2015 Work Programme they had to wait for one year.
