[8th BSH Webinar] European Research Council grants and Transnational Access to research infrastructures in HORIZON 2020

This webinar will be the 8th of a series of 15 Black Sea Horizon project webinars providing information and good practices about Horizon 2020 in general and on specific calls launched thereunder in particular with potential for bi-regional cooperation. The goal of the webinars is to promote and enhance the participation of researchers from academia and industry from the Black Sea countries in Horizon 2020. The webinars in this series are free of charge and open to all participants from Black Sea Countries.

This webinar will consist of two parts, devoted to two interdisciplinary topics:

1. Grants of the European Research Council

Grants of the European Research Council have been recognised as one of the most prestigeous in the world.  More than 6000 grants were awarded during the last 10 years. The calls are very competitive and the success rate oscillates between 10% and 12%.

The ERC grants ensure much academic freedom for project leaders (Principle Investigators), concerning the merit of the project, the composition of the research team, and the choice of the host institution (in one of the EU or Associated Country). Last but not least, they offer substantial funding. However, funds are awarded only to projects proposing frontier research, run by creative researchers.

The webinar will focus on:

  • particular types of ERC grants – Starting, Consolidator, Advanced,
  • evaluation criteria,
  • evaluation procedure,
  • application form,
  • help from National Contact points.

AGENDA

  • General information on the ERC
  • Types of ERC grants
  • Evaluation criteria
  • Evaluation procedure
  • Application form
  • Help from NCPs

 

2. Transnational Access to research infrastructures

There are projects under Horizon 2020, specially designed to facilitate FREE OF CHARGE access to European research infrastructures. The researchers (from all over the world) interested in running experiments in the best quality laboratories, observatories, etc., apply directly to a project or facility for short-term grants, lasting 1 week to 3 months. The costs of travel, subsistence and the research experiments are covered from the budget of each project.

At the moment >40 such projects are running but since the next year their number will be doubled.

The webinar will focus on:

  • specific features of projects offering access to infrastructures,
  • sources of information where to find relevant project,
  • application processes,
  • help from National Contact points.
