Aim of each session

The aim of each session is to provide participants with an overview of the ERC in the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and will focus on the application process for the ERC Starting Grant scheme. Participants should gain a deeper understanding of the proposal format and the key issues they are required to address in planning, writing and costing a Starting Grant proposal. There will be opportunities to ask questions during each session.

Who should attend?

The sessions will be of particular interest to UK-based researchers planning to submit a proposal for the ERC Starting Grants.
