Funding for successful ERC applicants
Starting from 2017, the School of Electrical Engineering has granted funding to researchers, who have fared well in European Research Council (ERC) application processes, if they meet the following criteria:
- 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 purpose of the funding is to launch the research described in the 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 plan must include a description how the funding will be used and of expected improvements of the of the application for the next ERC call. The documents will be submitted in PDF format to Development Manager Outi Elina Kansanen ([email protected]).
- School funding is granted to researchers who have been granted ERC funding, when necessary, as a ramp down / bridge funding when an ERC project comes to an end. A ramp down plan is drawn up at the latest during a project’s third year, and negotiations are held with the dean and the department on a case-by-case basis.
