Funding opportunities for researchers
Researchers and excellent research are the backbone of advancement. Your (PhD) research could be the answer to health-related questions, sustainable solutions or groundbreaking technologies that will help make the world a better place:
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA)
Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) supports the development of talent and advancement of research. It aims to equip you with the necessary skills and international experience for a successful career. There are four Actions that offer you the support you need. For example, Doctoral Networks implements programmes that train a new generation of early-stage researchers and Postdoctoral Fellowships supports the career development of postdoctoral researchers.
European Research Council (ERC)
Both young and established researchers can apply for funding via European Research Council (ERC), regardless of the field of interest. This competitive programme consists of five grants: the Starting Grant, the Consolidator Grant, the Advanced Grant, the Proof of Concept Grant and the Synergy Grant. Which grants fit you and your research best depends on your needs and where you are right now as a researcher.
European Innovation Council (EIC)
Breakthrough technologies are built on scientific basis. Your research project is therefore valuable to propelling the next groundbreaking innovation. The European Innovation Council (EIC), and particularly the EIC Pathfinder, offers funding to advanced research on breakthrough technologies and innovations.
