European Research Council (Excellent Science): 2019-SyG Synergy Grants

ERC-2019-SyG Synergy Grants

ERC-2019-SyG synergy grants will enable between two and four investigators, and their teams, to bring together complementary skills, knowledge, and resources in new ways, in order to jointly address ambitious research problems.

The aim of these grants is to promote substantial advances at the frontiers of knowledge, to cross-fertilise scientific fields, and to encourage new productive lines of enquiry and new methods and techniques, including unconventional approaches and investigations at the interface between established disciplines.

Funding & Duration

Approximately 48 grants are available, each worth up to €10M (approx. AUD $16.3M) over six years. An additional €4M (approx. AUD $6.5M) can be requested.


Researchers based anywhere in the world, in any scientific field, may apply, but must intend to conduct their research in any EU member state, where they will spend a minimum of 50 per cent of their working time.

Please note: from 2019, one Principal Investigator per Synergy Grant Group, except the Corresponding one, can be hosted or engaged by an institution outside of the EU or Associated Countries.
