Q: For ERC Grant schemes: Starting Grant: Some EURYI Grant have been awarded a few years ago. Their PIs will look for new funding opportunities. Are they eligible to apply if they fulfil the 2-12 years� criteria?
A: The PI can apply. However, please note that the main strategic aim for ERC Starting Grant funding scheme is to provide to the most promising starting researchers in Europe the financial means to establish research independence or consolidate their role as independent research leaders. Since the objectives of the EURYI Grant are similar to the ERC Starting Grant (supporting PI to make transition to and/or consolidate their research independence), it is therefore expected that - like a PI supported by an ERC Starting Grant - a former EURYI awardee has established research independence.
