ERC training at RWTH Aachen

On the 16th of November 2016, we provided a one day training for participants with interest in applications to the ERC starting grant and ERC consolidator grant.
The overall goal was to prepare the attendants for this funding opportunity and increase success rates. Our methods included giving participants a better insight in the soft criteria for ERC with key insights and best practices.

The training
In the morning session we provided background insights as well as best practices, including examples of approved ERC proposals. The afternoon session was dedicated to the preparation of the participant’s own research pitches, and to ERC interview training.

Furthermore, we offered a CV check for the researchers.
