Q: ERC - Is it possible to reduce the duration of the project in order to allow the Principal Investigator apply for an ERC Synergy Grant?
A: According to the Ideas Work Programme 2013, a Principal Investigator may hold only one frontier research grant from the ERC at any one time Please note that a request for a reduction of the duration of the project entails a series of consequences: Usually the project duration once reduced cannot be extended afterwards (even in case of failure in the application/evaluation process). A request for the reduction of the duration of a project has to be approved by the Scientific Department which will evaluate if the goals of the project can be reached in a shorter time. Shortening of the project duration might imply a pro-rata reduction of the maximum Union contribution. If the mid-term scientific report has not yet been submitted, a reorganisation of the scientific reporting period can be also envisaged. This would allow keeping its submission at the middle of the new duration of the project.
