European Research Council The European Research Council supports research in the knowledge frontier, as well as innovative ideas in new scientific fields; The ERC wants to encourage competitive non-oriented research in all fields, with the only premise of scientific excellence; ERC principles: 1 principal investigator, 1 institution, 1 project & 1 selection criterion: scientific excellence; There are no consortia, networks nor co-financing; Projects from all areas are funded; Bottom-up approach; The principal investigator can be of any nationality, age and find herself in any stage of her scientific career.

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions It is the main programme for the professional development of PhDs; The MSCA supports the development of the scientific career and the training of researchers from any discipline, emphasising mobility and the cooperation between companies and academia; It offers funding for PhD students and postdocs in all stages of their scientific career, promoting transnational mobility, intersectorial and scientific discipline transition Bottom-up approach Work programme: Remember the mobility requirement: researchers shall not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of their host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the reference date Research ServiceMay 2014 MSCA-IF Workshop on the 26th June!
Innovative Training Networks Objectives: Increase PhD and Master’s students’ excellence; Structure research and predoctoral training Scope: PhD students Expected impact: Increase the potential of the predoctoral researchers providing them with new career and academic perspectives; Achieve cooperation among participant institutions Research ServiceMay 2014
Individual Fellowships Objective: increase the creativity and innovative potential of experienced researchers. Scope: Individual and transnational actions that are awarded to the best researchers or those who are the most promising; Focused on career development, not on experience; Career Restart Panel and Reintegration Panel. Expected impact: extracting the full potential from researchers and achieve a significant leap in their careers, both in the academic and non- academic sectors. Research ServiceMay 2014

The importance of Networking What are your colleagues up to? Can you collaborate with them? If this is your first European project consider being a partner; There are no small roles; Once you have started, it will be easier to participate in more projects; Sell your expertise; Either as a partner or as a coordinator, the Research Service will help you. Research ServiceMay 2014
Conditions for the participation Oriented research; Formation of a consortium with at least 3 independent institutions established in different EU member or associated countries; Possibility of including 3rd countries only if they provide indispensable added value. If their participation is essential they will receive funding; if it is not, they will not receive any funding. Bear in mind that each call might have specific requirements: Indispensable (mandatory participation) countries; Number of participants; Participation of certain entities (trade unions, NGOs, hospitals...). Present the full proposal within the deadline. Research ServiceMay 2014 Research Service: information on calls, templates
Evaluation By independent experts; Possibility of 2-stage evaluations. Self evaluation forms can guide your writing; Check with colleagues; Check with the Research Service. Research ServiceMay 2014 You can become an evaluator and get first hand experience!
Three criteria: Scientific excellence: objectives and approach; Impact: Communication of the project; Exploitation of results; OPEN ACCESS Integration of new knowledge. Evaluation Research ServiceMay 2014 Importance of European approach Implementation: Work plan; Experience of participants; Management structures.
