We are happy you would like to register to the “ERC Basics” or “ERC Beyond” (or both!) workshops!


For your convenience, the “ERC Basics” & “ERC Beyond” workshops are available in several formats. To find the format that is best suited for you – begin by choosing either “single participant” (if you are signing up for yourself) or “closed-group” (if you would like to book these workshops for a group of participants from your institution). Inside you’ll discover the relevant formats.

Single Participant

In this format, the “ERC Basics” & “ERC Beyond'' workshops are provided through our online Enspire Science Academy. You will receive access to our produced video segments, and can watch them when most convenient to you!

Open workshop at changing locations - Due to COVID-19 this format is currently suspended

From time to time, we offer our ERC workshops at changing locations throughout Europe, so that single participants or small groups can participate. In this format, the workshop is “open for registration” which means participants will be joining us from various institutions. 


Due to COVID-19 there are currently no upcoming dates for this workshop format.


Closed Group
Online course

In this format, the “ERC Basics” & “ERC Beyond” workshops are provided through our online Enspire Science Academy. Participants receive access to our produced video segments, and can watch when most convenient to them! 


In accordance with the workshop content, the “ERC Beyond” workshop also includes a live Q&A session during which our team answers participants’ questions about materials from the “ERC Beyond” course. 


The participating group can be entirely registered to both “ERC Basics” & “ERC Beyond” online courses, or only 1 of the options. 


This format is limited to a group of up to 50 participants.

Onsite at your institution

In this format, our experts come all the way to your institution for an on-site workshop session, which can include both “ERC Basics” & “ERC Beyond” (as a two-day session), or just one of the workshops for a 1-day session.


This format is limited to a group of up to 50 participants. 


We can accommodate dates and times that work best for your participants, and will also customize the content based on the relevant calls and the participants’ background with the ERC grant.

Important considerations about the ERC workshops


  • Timeline of participation.  We recommend attending the workshops as soon as possible, and no later than 3 months before the relevant ERC deadline to allow considerable time for the proposal preparation phase.
  • Participant background. Anyone planning to apply to the ERC grant, whether they are first-time ERC candidates or applicants who have submitted to ERC in the past, as well as Research managers & Funding Advisers who wish to deepen their understanding about the ERC grant.

Keep in mind, to achieve a competitive proposal, it is imperative to acquire a firm grasp at the funding scheme’s basic requirements and rules, as well as its more conceptual and “unwritten” expectations. To ensure this, we highly recommend first-time ERC applicants to start with our “ERC Basics” workshop as an important prerequisite to the complementary “ERC Beyond” workshop.

  • ERC Calls. Our workshop covers the Starting, Advanced, Consolidator, and Synergy calls. We can put additional emphasis on specific calls during our live workshop formats (more information on workshop formats below).
