Horizon 2020: ERC Proof of Concept Grant - ERC-2019-PoC
Call for proposals: ERC Proof of Concept Grant.
An important notification has been published regarding applications to the ERC Proof of Concept Lump Sum Pilot [ERC-POC-LS] call, with the cut-off date 19 September 2019: due to an IT error, the proposal template was not appropriate: it refers to a ERC-POC (Proof of Concept Grant) Type of Action, instead of the accurate template for the ERC Proof of Concept Lump Sum Pilot [ERC-POC-LS] call. Please create a new application and copy/paste the data you had drafted in your previous version into a new one, using the correct Lump sum template (now available on the online submission system).
The ERC actions are open to researchers of any nationality who intend to conduct their research activity in any EU Member State or H2020 Associated Country. Principal Investigators may be of any age and nationality and may reside in any country in the world at the time of the application. ERC Principal Investigators do not have to be based full-time in Europe.
The host institution must either be established in an EU Member State or H2020 Associated Country as a legal entity created under national law, or it may be an International European Interest Organisation (such as CERN, EMBL, etc.), the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) or any other entity created under EU law.
All Principal Investigators in an ERC frontier research project, that is either on going or has ended less than 12 months before 1 January 2019, are eligible to participate and apply for an ERC Proof of Concept Grant. Principal Investigators may submit only one proposal under the Work Programme 2019 calls. If multiple submissions are made at different cut-off dates under the Work Programme 2019 only the first eligible proposal will be considered.
A Principal Investigator whose proposal was rejected on the grounds of a breach of research integrity in the calls under Work Programmes 2017 or 2018 may not submit a proposal to the calls under Work Programme 2019.
The host institution (Applicant Legal Entity) must engage the Principal Investigator(s) for at least the duration of the project, as defined in the grant agreement. It must either be established in an EU Member State or H2020 Associated Country as a legal entity created under national law, or it may be an International European Interest Organisation (such as CERN, EMBL, etc.), the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC) or any other entity created under EU law. Any type of legal entity, public or private, including universities, research organisations and undertakings can host Principal Investigators and their teams.
Budget: 25.000.000 EUR.
The financial contribution will be awarded as a lump sum of EUR 150 000 for a period of 18 months.
The lump sum offered will cover the beneficiaries' direct and indirect eligible costs for the project: if the project is implemented properly the amounts will be paid regardless of the costs actually incurred. Specifically, the lump sum has been designed to cover 100% of the eligible direct costs and indirect costs calculated by applying a flat-rate of 25% to the direct cost categories.
Cut off dates:
- 22 January 2019, 17:00 (Brussels time)
- 25 April 2019, 17:00 (Brussels time)
- 19 September 2019, 17:00 (Brussels time)
A single-stage submission and single-step evaluation procedure will be used. The evaluation will be conducted by independent experts. These experts may work remotely and may if necessary meet as an evaluation panel as set out below on the application of the evaluation criteria.
Proof of Concept Grants are awarded in relation to an existing ERC-funded project which has already been evaluated on the basis of excellence as the sole criterion. The evaluation criteria for selection of proposals for Proof of Concept Grants are excellence in innovation potential, impact and quality and efficiency of the implementation.
