In the 2007-2013 period, ERC supported the Seventh Framework Programme for European research and innovation, known as FP7. It was followed by the current Horizon 2020 programme for the 2014-2020 period.
- The European 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 European 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 European 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 European 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.
