The European Research Council (ERC) awarded 30.6 million euros to 13 research projects in spanish centers through the call Advanced Grant 2021. Spain is the fifth EU country in terms of number of funded projects.

This call is addressed to excellent projects led by scientists with an excellent track record of research accomplishments. In total, it will finance 253 projects from 21 EU Member States and associated countries. The budget allocation is EUR 624.6 million.

In the Spanish case, nine of the 13 projects awarded will be led by women, representing almost 70% of them.

The Advanced Grant 2021 received 1,735 proposals and the total call success rate was 14.6%. The researchers presented 20.8% of the total requests.

In the Spanish case, nine of the 13 projects awarded will be led by women, representing almost 70% of them. Scientists who received one of these scholarships in Spain work in the fields of economics, politics, humanities, physics and new energy sources.

UK in limbo with Brexit

The statistics and the final list of those selected are provisional. The Trade and Cooperation Agreement between the European Union and the United Kingdom provides for the possibility of associating this country to the current EU research and innovation funding program, known as Horizon Europe, subject to the adoption of a Protocol. Since it has not been adopted so far, the UK is still considered not associated with Horizon Europe.

Applicants selected from UK institutions can still receive funding provided they transfer to a host institution in an eligible country

Proposals selected from applicants based in a country in the process of joining Horizon Europe will only be eligible for funding if the relevant partnership agreement is in place at the time of signature of the grant agreement. However, successful applicants from UK host institutions can still receive funding provided they transfer to a host institution in an eligible country.
