ERC Information and Networking Event

7th March, Agora Haut-Carré, Bordeaux, France


Participation to this event is open to all and free of charge.

European Research Council grants are recognised flagships of Horizon 2020, the European Union's Research Framework Programme for 2014 to 2020.

ERC grants are designed to encourage the highest quality of research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.

In this context the Université de Bordeaux, CNRS and INRA have joined forces with the European Research Council Executive Agency to host a special event in Talence open to all researchers and adminstrators across research disciplines and academic establishments to learn more about the different types of ERC calls and how to set about constructing an ERC proposal. At this event you will have the opportunity to hear more about each stage of the proposal selection process from ERC Panel Members and listen to the experiences of ERC grantees preparing their proposals and managing their ERC projects. This meeting will also provide an opportunity for participants to share experiences and questions around the subject of proposal writing and project management in the style of an ERC <speed-dating> and networking event.

So if you are interested in participating to this event, be sure to follow the instructions below and register soon!


Please come along to this free event open to all researchers and administrators   interested in preparing or participating in ERC proposals.
