ERC Starting Grant mentoring event
On 21st of September 2020 with support of Academia Europaea Tbilisi Knowledge hub the Young Academy of Europe is organized an online workshop for young researchers from EU13 and Associated Countries who are interested in applying for a European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grant.
The YAE members will provide guidance and support to young applicants from under-represented nations by connecting them with mentors who have successfully navigated through the process.
The event will start with a plenary information session for potential applicants and a short Q&A with a representative from the European Research Council Executive Agency (ERCEA). This is followed by three parallel sessions focusing on each ERC research domain: Physical Sciences & Engineering (PE), Life Sciences (LS), and Social Sciences & Humanities (SH). These sessions will be moderated by YAE members holding ERC grants who will give an overview of the domains, answer questions, and get to know the participants looking for mentors.
