University of Basel ERC Applicants
ERC at present
Due to Switzerland's status as a Third Country for Horizon Europe, ERC applications with research institutions from Switzerland are currently not possible for the Starting, Consolidator and Advanced Grants. For the Synergy Grant with 2-4 researchers per application, one partner may come from a Third Country and applications with research institutions from Switzerland are therefore possible. SERI (State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation) is currently drafting a mandate for the SNSF (Swiss National Science Foundation) to offer a back-up scheme for the Advanced Grant Call for researchers with a Swiss Host Institution, the deadline is expected in the 4th quarter of 2021. For questions about the 2022 ERC Calls please contact us, see contacts on the right.
Researchers from the University of Basel or University Hospital & Clinics who are planning to apply to for an ERC Grant, are requested to contact the Grants Office (Eve Silfverberg or Luca Wacker) well before the deadline. Support offered to applicants includes:
- Individual advice
- Applicants workshops
- Proposal review
- ERC applicants can also apply to the University's Research Fund for up to 50,000CHF for the preparation of thier ERC proposal.
