4 types of projects are financed by the ERC:
Starting: For researchers of any nationality with 2-7 years of experience since completion of PhD (or equivalent degree) and scientific track record showing great promise
Consolidator: For researchers of any nationality with over 7 and up to 12 years of experience since completion of PhD (or equivalent degree) and scientific track record showing great promise
Advanced : For researchers with up to 12 years of experience
Proof of Concept: is a funding scheme open to researchers who have already been awarded an ERC grant. Its purpose is to help ERC grantees explore the innovation potential of their research or support commercialisation of the results of their ERC-funded research
The Jean d'Alembert fellowship program
Through the Jean d'Alembert fellowship programme, Université Paris-Saclay enables highly-qualified foreign scientists to stay from 6 to 12 months in one of Université Paris-Saclay’s laboratories.
Scientists from all disciplines and all countries are eligible. The content of the project as well as the duration of the stay must be established before application in connection with the Paris-Saclay home team.
Two different programmes are offered to:
- junior researchers for candidates who obtained their doctorate for less than ten years,
- and senior researchers fellowships.
In both cases, the 6 to 12 months visit can be divided into a maximum of two different periods with a minimum duration of three months, separated by 12 months at most between the end of the first period and the beginning of the second one.
