ERC Synergy Grants in 2018
The ERC Scientific Council decided to take the preliminary steps to reinstate the Synergy Grant funding scheme in 2018.
Synergy Grants can bring together top researchers with complementary skills and knowledge and enable them to jointly address a commonly chosen challenging research problem in unconventional ways, potentially leading to major breakthroughs that scientists would not be able to achieve working alone.
The ERC Scientific Council agreed to re-introduce the scheme in the beginning of October at its plenary session in Dublin, Ireland. The future Synergy Grant call for proposals, including its budget, dates and eligibility criteria, should be published in the 2018 ERC Work Programme to be adopted by the European Commission in 2017.
