Proof of Concept Grant

When to submit

Q: At what stage can an ERC winner submit a proposal to the PoC Grant? Can he/she do it before the ending of their current grant? If yes- when will be the earliest time possible?


A: An ERC grantee can submit a PoC proposal once the ERC grant has started until 12 months after ERC project has been finished.

So if a grantee got the grant on January 1st 2014 and the grant last 5 years, he/she will be eligible for a PoC grant since January 1st 2014 until January 1st 2020.

Q: If a researcher received “C” last year while proposing to the Synergy Grant, can he/she apply this year for the CoG?


A: Restrictions for resubmission only apply to applicants who scored a C in the 2013 Starting, Consolidator and Advanced calls. 2013 Synergy grant applicants are not subject to 2014 resubmission restrictions.
