European Individual Grants
The Excellent Science pillar of Horizon Europe includes two main career funding programmes:
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Postdoctoral Fellowships (MSCA-PF) provide researchers with excellent training and career development opportunities. We kindly ask applicants to contact the the Grants Office for further support and information.
European Research Council (ERC) supports ground-breaking, innovative projects from excellent researchers. More than 50 researchers from the University of Basel have received one of these prestigious and highly competitive Grants. Read the article on the ERC project FLIRT of Prof. Gianluca Crippa on the EU project database CORDIS.
