Research money- from researcher to researcher, ERC-SIR grant
Research money- from researcher to researcher The European Research Councli, ERC, Starting Independent Researcher Grant
The scheme is designed to support researchers at the stage at which they are starting their first
research team or, depending on the field, establishing their independent research programme.
Independence implies the investigators having authority to apply for, hold and manage their
own research funding, to publish as senior authors and to supervise research students or
others. The selection panels will be empowered to conclude whether the applicants have been
granted or are being granted independence.
Its main function will be to provide ERC Starting Independent Researcher Grants to support
the creation of independent and excellent new individual research teams and to strengthen
others that have been recently created.
