The European Commission (EC) finances individual and collaborative projects of excellent scientific quality and high scientific and/or societal impact:
- EC proposes individual research grants for the early stage and confirmed researchers: ERC Starting, ERC Consolidator, ERC Advanced grants. Since 2012, Institut du Cerveau – ICM has hosted /managed 10 ERC grants in coordination (including 7 ongoing) and two ERC grants as a partner.
- EC allows to support collaborative fundamental projects in the framework of the ERC Synergy call (relaunched in 2017)
- Through the H2020 (former FP), FET Flagship and IMI grants, the EC provides funding for collaborative translational projects in the field of Societal Challenges, Personalised Medicine, Rare Diseases, e-Health, etc. Since 2012, Institut du Cerveau – ICM has managed 11 H2020 collaborative grants.
