ERC Grants

Several outstanding researchers at NTNU have received grants from the European Research Council (ERC).

The ERC encourages in particular proposals that cross disciplinary boundaries, pioneering ideas that address new and emerging fields and applications that introduce unconventional, innovative approaches.

The award of a grant from ERC is the most prestigious funding a researcher can receive.

NTNU has designed the Onsager Fellowship Programme and the Outstanding Academic Fellows Programme as a means to double the number of ERC grants awarded to NTNU researchers from Horizon 2020 compared to the 7th Framework Programme.
