Questions about the ERC? Would you like to consult with us on a project proposal or advise on the preparation of an application? Do not hesitate to contact us and join the University ERC Pipeline from the very beginning of your project preparation.
* Some faculties also have their own internal ERC Pipeline, in which case it is a good idea to contact the faculty science department or the faculty grants office first. In other cases, do not hesitate to contact the university ERC consultant.
WHAT CAN WE HELP YOU WITH?
Support in the project preparation phase = assessment, review and feedback to your proposal.
Information on ERC events (ERC National Information Day, workshops for applicants, mock interviews for applicants, workshops for project managers and institutions).
WHO DO WE WORK WITH?

The university consultant for ERC projects is Veronika Syrovátková.
The Expert Group to support applicants in ERC calls was established in January 2021 based on the Joint Declaration of Charles University and the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. It consists of a coordinator and 10 members from 3 scientific domains according to the ERC structure. Its task is to support ERC applicants at the national level in cooperation with the Prague Technology Centre.
The Expert Group, headed by Prof. Zdeněk Strakoš, organizes many activities every year to support ERC applicants - the ERC National Information Day, workshops for applicants, mock interviews for applicants, workshops for project managers and institutions to support ERC applicants and individual consultations.
The composition of the Expert Group, its activities and further information can be found HERE.
The CU also financially supports ERC applicants to submit high-quality applications through the Rector's Directive No. 8/2023, Support for Submitting Applications for ERC Grants at Charles University.
