Funding opportunities

Support for funding applications

In order to strengthen the University of Southern Denmark’s potential to take home funding from the European Research Council (ERC), the Executive Board has decided to support the researchers who are applying funds from the ERC.

Support will be in the form of financial support to resubmit an application which has been accepted in the application process, but then refused. In addition, a mentoring scheme is established, for candidates who are applying for Starting Grants and Consolidator Grants, and who would like to improve their chances to perform well at the ERC interview; which is part of the application process for these instruments. The regulations will take effect in the next application round in 2014.

Further information can be found here.

Danish instruments
The next ERC call is not expected until early to mid-2014. For a limited period (autumn 2013), it will therefore be offered support for applications to the Danish National Research Foundation (Centers of Excellence), The Danish Council for Strategic Research (strategic research centers) and The Danish National Advanced Technology Foundation (Advanced Technology Platforms). In order to obtain support, it is a condition that the projects in question are larger projects, where the applicants apply for a substantial amount of money to research at SDU.
