Research Council discontinues funding scheme for ERC applicants

The Research Council of Norway is terminating the funding scheme for researchers whose applications for an ERC grant received a high ranking but were nonetheless turned down

Under the scheme, researchers whose applications for either an ERC Advanced Grant or an ERC Starting Grant were turned down due to budgetary limitations were potentially able to obtain up to 75 per cent of the funding sought. 

“We have decided to terminate this funding scheme because we are uncertain that it has provided sufficient benefit overall. When we started the scheme in 2008 we felt that the positive effects would outweigh the negative. Developments since that time indicate that this is no longer the case,” says Anders Hanneborg, Executive Director of the Division for Science at the Research Council.
