ERC Grants

Starting, Advanced and Consolidator Grants

The European Research Council (ERC) stimulates high-quality research in Europe by making funds available and supporting groundbreaking research. The ERC mainly honours applications for research that bridges the boundaries of various disciplines, explores ideas in newly emerging research areas, or seeks solutions using an unconventional and innovative approach.

The ERC distributes grants and scholarships on the basis of an open contest for projects undertaken by new as well as experienced researchers, regardless of their nationality or age. Only one single criterion applies: research excellence.

A number of UvA researchers have in recent years been awarded ERC Starting and Advanced Grants, which are worth up to €1.5 million and €2.5 million respectively.
