New ERC calls published under Horizon 2020

29.07.2015

On 29 July 2015, the European Research Council (ERC) published its annual
work programme which includes the new calls for 2016. The European Research Council (ERC) provides funding opportunities for excellent researchers in all fields of research with approximately 1.7 billion euros in 2016.

Along with the work programme, the ERC opened the calls for the „Starting Grants (StG)“ scheme. The "Starting Grants" are designed for excellent young scientists of all nationalities with 2-7 years of experience following their PhD. Deadline for this call is 17 November 2015.

On 29 July 2015, the European Research Council (ERC) published its annual
work programme which includes the new calls for 2016. The European Research Council (ERC) provides funding opportunities for excellent researchers in all fields of research with approximately 1.7 billion euros in 2016.

The ERC annually launches calls for proposals in three funding schemes: Starting Grants, Consolidator Grants and Advanced Grants. It provides funding opportunities for excellent researchers of any nationality who wish to carry out their research at an institution in Europe.

Along with the work programme, the ERC opened the calls for the „Starting Grants (StG)“ scheme. The "Starting Grants" are designed for excellent young scientists of all nationalities with 2-7 years of experience following their PhD. Deadline for this call is 17 November 2015.

The „Consolidator Grants (CoG)“ call will be open from 15 October 2015 until 2 February 2016. ERC Consolidator Grants support promising researchers who are at the beginning of an independent research career and who are between 7-12 years after achieving their PhD.

The application under the „Advanced Grants (AdG)“ scheme will open next year from 24 May 2016 until 1 September 2016. The call for "Advanced Grants" addresses excellent, established researchers with a research experience of more than 10 years.

The grants are awarded for a period of up to five years with a funding amount of up to 2 million euros for "Starting Grants", 2.75 million euros for „Consolidator Grants“ and up to 3.5 million euros for "Advanced Grants". All schemes are open to researchers of any nationality and any current place of work. However, ERC projects must be carried out at an institution in Europe.

Calls for the funding scheme “Proof of Concept” are set to open on 22 October 2015. This scheme exclusively targets ERC grant holders (StG, CoG or AdG) who seek to establish the innovation potential of ideas arising from their ERC-funded projects. Researchers can apply for the deadlines 16 February 2016, 26 May 2016 and 4 October 2016.

Providing advice to applicants

The German National Contact Point ERC, a collaboration between the EU-Bureau of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (EU-Büro des BMBF) and the "European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations" (Kooperationsstelle EU der Wissenschaftsorganisationen - KoWi), offers its free-of-charge services to any researcher with a (future) host institution in Germany. Besides rendering individual advice to applicants, the NCP ERC also offers workshops and information sessions on ERC in Germany.

The EU-Bureau of the BMBF is located at the DLR Project Management Agency in the German Aerospace Centre (DLR). It unites several tasks and services under a single roof and acts initially as a contact point for general information and questions regarding the EU Research Framework Programme.

Organisations and potential grantees may find information and the NCP ERC event calendar on http://www.erc-germany.de (in English) or http://www.nks-erc.de (in German). The NCP team will be happy to answer any questions concerning the application.

The DLR Project Management Agency is a specialized service provider for the facilitation of research, innovation and education. The covered spectrum of topics ranges from environment, culture, sustainability, health, education and key technologies to innovation and research transfer. With over 1000 employees and the management of around 8500 projects as well as over one billion Euros of research funds, the DLR Project Management Agency is the largest institution of its kind in Germany. The agency supports the federal ministries with the implementation of research programmes and additionally works for the European Commission as well as other public institutions and private customers.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
