The ERC publishes new deadlines and budgets for 2022
In our previous article we discussed the calendar shift of the ERC Grants due to the transition from Horizon 2020 to Horizon Europe. The ERC has now also published the (tentative) deadlines for the 2022 work programme, including proposed budgets! Note that the work programme for 2022 is not yet approved, so the information for 2022 is still subject to change.
