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 as part of its 2018 Work Programme 2018.
T-ERC is open to all ERC research disciplines (LS, PE, SH).
The T-ERC instrument aims to:
Tremplin-ERC is intended for researchers affiliated to a French academic research organization who did not receive funding from the ERC Consolidator Grants despite having submitted top-quality projects (ranked A after the 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 200 k€ for a maximum duration of 24 months.
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 by e-mail (from the ERC-Executive Agency).
