ERC-Grants

European Research Council (ERC)

The European Research Council’s (ERC) funding programmes provide excellent opportunities for top-level scientific research in all academic fields. The ERC supports in particular fundamental and visionary research. Scientific excellence is the decisive criterion.  With a project budget of € 1.5 – 2.5 mill. for a period of up to 5 years, the ERC Grants are both an attractive award and an accolade for researchers.

Research Services at Leibniz Universität Hannover provides intensive assistance in the application process to researchers at the faculty.

These outstanding researchers are receiving support from an ERC Grant to pursue their innovative or unconventional research ideas:
