European Research Council (ERC) inspiration day with researcher dialogue

Are you curious about the opportunities for you in the European Research Council (ERC)? Do you have great ideas that need attractive funding? Would you like to gain more knowledge the ERC expectations to applicants? Then join the ERC inspiration day 9 April 2018 in Aarhus.

Time and place

Registration

Deadline for registration: 3 April 2018

The aim of the day is to inspire researchers to apply for an ERC grant at some stage in their career. The event will provide you with the big picture and the big vision of ERC, as well as address the very basic conceptual scientific challenges that researchers often face when writing an ERC application. The programme furthermore gives a concrete insight into the ERC project reality seen from a researcher’s perspective.

Target audience

The ERC inspiration day is for researchers at all career levels (including Ph.D. students) considering applying for one of the prestigious ERC grants, as well as for researchers that are just curious about the opportunities in ERC. Finally, the ERC inspiration day is also for research managing and research supporting staff that take part in the ERC application processes.

During the day there will be plenty of opportunities to raise questions, discuss with the presenters, and meet the ERC expert staff at the Danish Agency for Science and Higher education as well as your local research support staff.
