Through various types of individual grants (see below), the ERC finances exploratory, ambitious and innovative projects. These projects last 5 years and have a substantial budget. They allow researchers to form or consolidate their own research teams and to benefit from increased international visibility.
ERC calls for projects are open to researchers of any nationality, provided they work in a European Union country, and to all research fields. The sole selection criterion is scientific excellence.

The various ERC Grants
- The ERC Starting Grant aims to support promising young researchers with 2-7 years of experience after their Ph.D., who have shown their potential to become independent research leaders. Up to 1.5 million euros can be awarded for a five-year period. With this grant, researchers will be able to set up their own team.
- The ERC Consolidator Grant aims to support a researcher with 7-12 years of experience after their Ph.D., who is capable of implementing their project independently. Up to two million euros can be awarded for a five-year period. With this grant, the scientist will be able to undertake exploratory projects (innovative project or methodology).
- The ERC Advanced Grant aims to support researchers with at least 10 years of experience after their Ph.D., who have shown their research to be original and significant. Up to 2.5 million euros can be awarded for a five-year period.
- The ERC Proof of Concept grant enables researchers who have already been awarded an ERC grant to assess the commercial potential of their research. Up to 150,000 euros can be awarded over 18 months.
- The « ERC Synergy grant » funds a group of 2 to 4 researchers brought together to carry out a very ambitious project thanks to their complementary expertise. The funding can reach 10 million euros over 6 years.
