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 2017.
T-ERC is open to all ERC research disciplines (LS, PE, SH).
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).
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 150 k€ over 18 months.
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 by email (from the ERC-Executive Agency).
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.
