Convocatòria (URL)
ERC Advanced Grant Principal Investigators are expected to be active researchers and to have a track record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years which must be presented in the application. There is little prospect of an application succeeding in the absence of such a record, which identifies investigators as exceptional leaders in terms of originality and significance of their research contributions.
Up to a maximum of EUR 2 500 000 for a period of 5 years.
However, up to an additional EUR 1 000 000 can be requested in the proposal to cover
(a) "start-up" costs for Principal Investigators moving to the EU or an Associated Country from elsewhere as a consequence of receiving the ERC grant and/or
(b) the purchase of major equipment and/or
(c) access to large facilities and/or
(d) other major experimental and field work costs, excluding personnel costs..
Up to 5 years.
Restrictions on applications will apply to the 2022 calls based on the outcome of the evaluation of previous calls – see restrictions on submission of proposals under the “Admissibility and eligibility criteria” section in the Work Programme.

Restrictions on applications will also apply to Principal Investigators whose proposals have been rejected on grounds of breach of research integrity.

Applicant Principal Investigators whose proposals are retained for the second step of the evaluation will be invited to present their proposal to the evaluation panel.

NEW: As from 2021 it is no longer possible for applicants to opt out of the submission of Research Data Management plans.
