ERC is highly competitive and has a list of unique requirements and dedicated “unwritten” rules that you must follow in order to ensure your proposal is successful. Before you begin the long process of developing your proposal, start with our free service to evaluate the suitability of your project and your personal track record in the context of ERC.

The free ERC “Go/No-Go” service is in line with the distinct aspects of ERC, and serves as a “screening process”. We will alert in case we detect any show-stopper or major problem with the presented CV and project.

During the evaluation process, the team will cover and review the following important aspects of your potential project and proposal:

Academic CV and Track record:

ERC is looking to fund investigator-driven projects that are lead by creative and independent researchers with an outstanding track record. In order to make sure your track record is up to par for ERC standards, we will review the list of your publications as well as your international visibility, as manifested through participation in internationally established conferences and/or invited talks.

Research Project:

We will review the following items –

  • Any relevant eligibility issues
  • Any errors that may lead to technical rejection
  • Research idea and its novel aspects
  • Hypothesis or new approach of your project
  • High-risk & high-gain aspects of your research proposal
  • And the interlinks between the above

The outcome of this evaluation will enable you to reach one very important conclusion about your research project at this point in time: is the project a go or no-go?

Please refer to our timeline and deadline policies to learn more about the best time for this service, and our deadline for accepting new applications.
