Funding for successful ERC applicants

Starting from 2017, the School of Science has granted funding to researchers, who have fared well in European Research Council (ERC) application processes, if they meet the following criteria:

  1. An applicant has made it to the second round in the Starting, Consolidator, or Advanced Grant application processes, but has not been granted ERC funding. In this case, the school will grant a sum of EUR 100 000 on the basis of a separate research plan. The school encourages the applicants to use the funding for launching the research described in their ERC application, which will improve their chances when taking part in the following ERC application round. The research plan should be at most two pages long, and in addition to the plan a signed application form should be submitted. The documents will be submitted in PDF format to Development Manager Marja Niemi ([email protected]).
  2. School funding is granted to researchers who have been granted ERC funding, when necessary, when an ERC project comes to an end as financing for the ramp down stage. A ramp down plan is drawn up at the latest during a project’s third year, and negotiations are held with the dean or department on a case-by-case basis.
