Call for proposals: SUPPORT FOR ERC 2018


 The ambition of the I-SITE ULNE project is to sustain and expand excellence in research and education. To achieve this challenge, we propose to researchers and laboratories of the I-SITE ULNE consortium a new instrument to boost the submission of ERC projects among our scientific community.


Who can submit?

The call is open to researchers of I-SITE ULNE consortium (in or outside thematic hubs).


The goal of the present call is to provide researchers with the appropriate scientific environment to improve their project, leading to an ERC grant.

Allocated resources:

The applicant will have to choose between a grant for one year of Post-doctoral recruitment or half of a grant for PhD recruitment. In addition, I-SITE ULNE will attribute 50 000€ to support the project development (if approved by the head of the institution, this grant can be used for compensation of teaching hours).

In agreement with the ambitions of I-SITE ULNE, special attention will be given to projects from or involving the human and social sciences.

Selection Process:


-          The application will have to be approved by the head of laboratory. A letter of support by an international ERC granted researcher is recommended but not mandatory. A validation by the head of the institution will be required.

-          Proposals will be reviewed and ranked by external reviewers.


The applicants will have 3 years to submit their ERC proposals following the I-SITE ULNE grant attribution (from starting date).

Application should be made online following this link: https://erc-generator.sciencesconf.org/
