Open – 2020

Announcement: Tremplin-ERC (T-ERC_STG). The nineth call is open

Designed to improve France’s success rate in European Research Council (ERC) calls, Tremplin-ERC (T-ERC) is a funding instrument set up by ANR for Work Programme 2020.

T-ERC is open to all ERC research disciplines (LS, PE, SH).

The T-ERC instrument aims to:

  • encourage scientific excellence by supporting high quality applications;
  • strengthen French participation and increasing France’s rate of success in upcoming ERC calls;

Tremplin-ERC is intended for researchers affiliated to a French academic research organization who did not receive funding from the ERC Starting Grants despite having submitted top-quality projects (ranked A after second evaluation step). Researchers who will no longer meet the eligibility criteria of the ERC "Starting Grant" calls in 2021 or 2022 are not concerned by this 9th edition of the T-ERC call.

The goal is to give researchers a leg up when it comes to submitting a new application, thereby giving them firm foothold from which to succeed. Projects are funded up to 125 k€ over 24 months (max.).

Swift decision-making and funding

ANR has made special arrangements to speed up decision-making and funding. The submission application in particularly has been streamlined, making use of application documents previously transmitted to the ERC.

* Applicants who had submit ERC proposals and who are not funded (ranked A for the second stage), will be invited to submit a proposal to the ANR via an email (from the ERC-Executive Agency).

Enhancing French scientific excellence and appeal

The funding instrument T-ERC is part of France’s national strategy for strengthening French research and technological innovation aimed at increasing France’s influence and international scientific attractiveness.
