Information Meeting on the Opportunities in the European Research Council (ERC) for Hospital-Based Researchers

Are you an elite researcher at a hospital and do you conduct fundamental research, transnational research or clinical research? Then this meeting about funding opportunities within the European Research Council (ERC) is likely relevant for you. The meeting will take place on Monday 11 September 2023
  • Time and place
  • When September 11, 2023 from 01:00 PM to 03:00 PM
  • Where Rigshospitalet, Blegdamsvej 9, stairway 44, 2100 København Ø, Auditorium 1

The purpose of the event is to focus on the many advantageous opportunitets ERC offers to elite researchers based at hospitals. The ERC offers grants of five years for projects that the researchers themselves define. The ERC is part of the EU's framework programme for research and innovation, Horizon Europe.

At the event, various speakers will talk about several aspects of the ERC and the advantageous grants that the ERC offers. Initially, there will be introductory presentations from two members of ERC's Scientific Council and the deputy director of the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science.

This is followed by a presentation by ERC's Agency on hospital-based research.

The meeting will conclude with an inspirational case in the form of a presentation by a clinical researcher who has extensive experience in applying for and obtaining grants from the ERC as the recipient of two ERC grants.

The meeting provides ample opportunity to ask the presenters questions.
