Developing a highly competitive ERC grant proposal that meets both written and “unwritten” rules requires months of work and preparation. Our unique Deep Dive service ensures you will have our ongoing support, consultation and feedback through every step of your grant-writing way.

During the course of your project development, we will provide an in-depth review of the ERC application, while learning the scientific presentation of your project, studying relevant publications, and thoroughly preparing and guiding you through all the relevant steps of the grant preparation process – from idea to submission.

In the process, we will put the emphasis on the unique attributes that we know ERC is looking for which you can learn more about in our ERC Knowledge Base.

These ERC attributes include:

  • PI’s profile and his/her unique position to carry out the project
  • Novelty

  • High-gain
  • Non-incremental research
  • Investigator-driven
  • Hypothesis-driven
  • Open-end
  • Methodology
  • Fragmentation
