The ERC Consolidator Grant, a European excellence scholarship

As part of the Horizon 2020, research and innovation program, the ERC Consolidator scholarship aims to finance exploratory research projects on an innovative theme and lasting 5 years with a budget of approximately two million euros.

Aimed at researchers with 7 to 12 years of experience after their doctorate, this grant supports promising scientists who wish to form or consolidate their research team.

With a very high level of competitiveness, the ERC Consolidator Grant call for projects rewards excellence projects on ambitious and risky research subjects.
