Funding, Grants & Competitions

  • Membership application for Working Groups in EuroProofNet (COST Action)

    EuroProofNet is a new COST action aiming at federating all the European researchers working on proofs in order to improve the interoperability of proof systems. There are currently 6 working groups (WG):
    - WG1: Proof systems interoperability.
    - WG2: Automated theorem provers.
    - WG3: Program verification.
    - WG4: Libraries of formal proofs.
    - WG5: Machine learning on proofs.
    - WG6: Type theory.

    A COST action can fund visits to other labs, and participation to summer schools, workshops and conferences. Anyone willing to contribute to the goals of the action is eligible. If you are interested, registration to EuroProofNet working groups is now open (it's possible to register to several working groups).

  • ERC Synergy Grant

    Deadline: Wednesday 10 November 2021

    The aim is to provide support for a small group of two to four Principal Investigators to jointly address ambitious research problems that could not be addressed by the individual Principal Investigators and their teams working alone. Synergy projects should enable substantial advances at the frontiers of knowledge, stemming, for example, from the cross-fertilization of scientific fields, from new productive lines of enquiry, or new methods and techniques, including unconventional approaches and investigations at the interface between established disciplines. The transformative research funded by Synergy Grants should have the potential of becoming a benchmark on a global scale.

  • (New) ERC Starting Grant

    Deadline: Thursday 13 January 2022

    Are you a talented early-career scientist who has already produced excellent supervised work, is ready to work independently and shows potential to be a research leader? The ERC Starting Grant could be for you.

  • ABC Project grant

    Deadline: Monday 31 January 2022

    ABC grants are intended to motivate and enhance interfaculty research collaborations that are of an interdisciplinary nature. The overall mission is to come to a better understanding of the mechanisms of cognition, from perception to decision making, from language to music, and from memory to consciousness. The ABC encourages collaborative projects in which more than one faculty is involved and where there is an integrated plan of how to address a key question in brain and cognitive sciences in an innovative and interdisciplinary fashion.

  • (New) ERC Consolidator Grant

    Deadline: Thursday 17 March 2022

    Are you a scientist who wants to consolidate your independence by establishing a research team and continuing to develop a success career in Europe? The ERC Consolidator Grant could be for you. You can also apply if you have recently created an independent, excellent research team and want to strengthen it.

  • (New) ERC Advanced Grant

    Deadline: Thursday 28 April 2022

    Are you an established, leading principal investigator who wants long-term funding to pursue a ground-breaking, high-risk project? The ERC Advanced Grant could be for you.
