EU Advanced Grants

The European Union offers its Advanced Grants to top researchers of any age and nationality. The European Research Council's (ERC) Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains.
Only a certain part of the research time has to be located in the EU.
