The Malta Council for Science and Technology is receiving proposals under the ERC Support Scheme. The Scheme aims to strengthen the opportunities for talented researchers to obtain grants from the European Research Council (ERC) for excellent and ground-breaking research based on researchers’ own ideas within all areas of research. The Scheme is divided into two options:

Option A: Mentoring initiative

The mentoring initiative will support potential ERC applicants by helping to identify international experts to provide coaching and advice.

Option B: Proposal writing trainings.

The objective of this activity is to raise the capabilities of potential ERC candidates to prepare successful ERC grant applications through attending ERC proposal writing trainings (online or physical).

The tentative dates for the upcoming ERC calls can be seen here.

Find out more about this Funding Opportunity by watching a recording of the Horizon Europe Support Schemes Info Session that took place online on the 9th of March 2023 delivered by the National Contact Points for Horizon Europe in Malta.
