European calls for proposals in life sciences
4 november 2010-25 march 2011

European calls for proposals in life sciences

Call for proposals for ERC Advanced Investigators Grant in Life Sciences/ Deadline: 10 March 2011

The European Research Council (ERC) released a new call for proposals for advanced investigators in the domain of Life Sciences. The ERC Advanced Investigators grant encourages substantial advances at the frontier of knowledge by supporting excellent, leading investigators to pursue ground breaking, high-risk/high gain research, regardless of nationality, age or current location. The level of ERC Advanced Grants may be up to EUR 2 500 000 for a period of up to 5 years and can cover up to 100% of the total eligible direct costs of the research plus a contribution towards indirect costs.

The Grants will support projects carried out by individual teams which are headed by a single Principal Investigator. However, depending on the nature of a project the research team may also involve team members from other research organisations situated in the same or a different country. Indeed, research proposals of a multi- and inter-disciplinary nature are strongly encouraged throughout the ERC's schemes. In this context, the ERC also supports "Co-Investigator projects". A Principal Investigator applying for an Advanced Grant may identify a member or members of his/her individual team as Co-Investigators in order to bring together the necessary knowledge and skills from more than one discipline for a particular project. Such projects may request additional funding.

Applicants for the ERC Advanced Grant are expected to be active researchers and to have a track-record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years. They should match at least one or more of the following benchmarcks:

  • 10 publications as senior author in major international peer-reviewed multidisciplinary scientific journals, and/or in the leading international peer-reviewed journals of their respective field.
  • 5 granted patents
  • 10 invited presentations in well-established internationally organised conferences and advanced schools.
  • 3 well-established international conferences or congresses where the applicant was involved in their organisation as a member of the steering and/or organizing committee.
  • International recognition through scientific prizes/awards or membership in well-regarded academies.

The ERC grants are open to all researchers, regardless of their age, nationality or current location. However, the ERC-funded research should be carried out in one of the 27 EU Member States or in one of the associated countries.

Transnational Research Projects on Rare Diseases / Deadline: 31/01/11

The Era-Net “E-Rare” has launched a transnational call for funding multilateral research projects on rare diseases. This call is open to research teams from 8 countries: Germany, Spain, Israel, Turkey, France, Austria, Greece and Belgium. The French “Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), will finance projects from French research teams.

COST Call for proposal / Deadline for preliminary proposal : 25/03/2011

COST, the European framework for European Cooperation in Science and Technology, is launching a call for proposal for research networks in 9 fields, including:

  • Biomedicine and molecular biosciences
  • Chemistry and molecular sciences and technologies
  • Materials, physics and nanosciences

It is also possible to submit a “transdomain proposal”. The support will cover the costs of networking activities such as meetings (e.g. travel, subsistence, local organiser support), conferences, workshops, short-term scientific exchanges, training schools, publications and dissemination activities. Remember, COST does not fund the research itself.
