University of Basel ERC Applicants

ERC current situation

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 and Consolidator 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.

Researchers from Swiss research institutions are eligible to apply for the ERC Advanced Grant Call 2024 with deadline on 29.08.2024.

For questions about the 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
