On 25 July 2016, the European Research Council (ERC) published its annual work programme which includes the new calls for 2017. The European Research Council (ERC) provides funding opportunities for excellent researchers in all fields of research with approximately 1.8 billion euros in 2017.

The ERC annually launches calls for proposals in three funding schemes: Starting Grants,Consolidator Grants and Advanced Grants. It provides funding opportunities for excellent researchers of any nationality who wish to carry out their research at an institution in Europe.

On 26 July, the ERC opened the calls for the "Starting Grants (StG)" scheme. The "Starting Grants" are designed for excellent young scientists of all nationalities with 2-7 years of experience following their PhD. Deadline for this call is 18 October 2016.

ERC grants are awarded for a period of up to five years with a funding amount of up to 2 million euros for "Starting Grants", 2.75 million euros for "Consolidator Grants" and up to 3.5 million euros for "Advanced Grants". All schemes are open to researchers of any nationality and any current place of work. However, ERC projects must be carried out at an institution in Europe.
