ERC Lab at UniTo

ERC Lab@UniTo

European Research Council (ERC) intends to encourage high quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence. It provides support to European leadership in world-class research.


Any individual researcher of any nationality with a promising or excellent track record and a brilliant research idea is eligible to apply. Scientific excellence is the sole selection criterion. Projects in all fields of research are eligible for funding. Individual research teams lead by a single principal investigator are supported.


 Check types of ERC grants and verify your eligibility on ERC website:

  • ERC Starting grant (2-7 years of experience after PhD)
  • ERC Consolidator grant (over 7-12 years of experience since completion of PhD)
  • ERC Advanced grant (any age, 10 years track-record)
  • ERC Synergy Grant


The UniTo Research Promotion Unit is the creator and coordinator of the ERC Lab @UniTo programme, which supports the preparation of proposals for the ERC - European Research Council Grants. The programme involves research talents of our University at different stages of their career as candidates for the Starting, Consolidator and Advanced calls.


If you wish to apply for an ERC Starting, Consolidator or Advanced Grant please contact UniTo Research Promotion Unit at [email protected].
