The ERC will fund frontier research projects defined and driven by researchers themselves. It will provide attractive and flexible funding to enable talented and creative individual researchers and their teams to pursue the most promising avenues at the frontier of science, on the basis of a Europe-wide competition. The ERC intends to continue funding through the existing grant types: 

  •  Starting Grants (StG) 
  • Consolidator Grants (CoG) 
  • Advanced Grants (AdG) 
  • Synergy Grants (SyG) 
  • Proof of Concept Grants (PoC)
