About the Event

The Synergy Grants are intended for a group of two to maximum four Principal Investigators (PIs) of which one will be designated as the corresponding PI (cPI) working together and bringing different skills and resources to tackle ambitious research problems. PIs must present an early achievement track-record or a ten-year track-record, whichever is most appropriate. Proposals will be evaluated on the sole criterion of scientific excellence which, in the case the ERC Synergy Grants, takes on the additional meaning of outstanding intrinsic synergetic effect, meaning applications must demonstrate that the proposed research cannot be carried out by a single PI working alone.

During the info session we will present the Synergy call which is tentatively scheduled to open in July 2021 and close on November 2021, the main updates and novelties by the Synergy grant call coordinator Dr. Agnes KULCSAR and we will learn from two experienced Israeli researchers participating in an ERC Synergy project.
