Work program of the European Research Council for 2021 published


On 22 February 2021, the European Research Council published the work program for the calls 2021. There are several changes compared to H2020. The first change concerns the ERC Call calendar – due to the transition from H2020 (2014–2020) to Horizon Europe (2021–2027), there is a shift in the calendar, meaning that the call ERC Synergy Grant (SyG) and ERC Proof of Concept (PoC) will not be opened in 2021, and their reopening is expected in the working program 2022.  Another modification has been made to the structure of the scientific panels, where two new panel have been added. New panel S7 will cover Human Mobility, Environment and Space and another new panel PE11 concerns material engineering.
