Novel ways to highlight the work funded by the ERC

The Call for Proposals ERC-2014-SUPPORT-1 “ERC Support for novel ways to highlight the work funded by the ERC and reach out a wider public” has been published by the European Commission, Directorate Research and Innovation.

 

The purpose of the current “ERC Support for novel ways to highlight the work funded by the ERC and reach out a wider public” call is to support an ambitious series of communication actions to promote and raise awareness of ERC-funded projects and results across Europe to as wide an audience as possible, including: scientists, students, media, policy-makers, the business community and the general public.

 

The “ERC Support for novel ways to highlight the work funded by the ERC and reach out a wider public” call aims to go beyond traditional scientific conferences and take a novel and creative approach with the following characteristics:

- spreading new ideas in science;

- reaching a very wide public of specialists and non-specialists and new audiences at both European and local levels;

- holding frequent, regular events throughout the duration of the campaign;

- being based on carefully selected ERC projects and grantees, from a range of countries and disciplines;

- ensuring visibility across Europe, covering different countries and languages;

- ensuring further dissemination and strong follow-up beyond events through audio-visual, web and social media activities.

 

Actions under the current “ERC Support for novel ways to highlight the work funded by the ERC and reach out a wider public” call may include:

- events to showcase selected ERC-funded results in the form of short, powerful and engaging talks given by ERC grantees;

- popular science activities linked to science festivals, centres and/or museums, which are successful platforms to popularize and disseminate science among non-specialists;

- cooperation with existing networks of universities, learned societies and science academies to establish ERC online lectures involving ERC grantees.

 

The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of the action is estimated at EUR 1 600 000 maximum. The maximum duration of the project will be 48 months. Up to two proposals will be selected. The Union financial contribution will take the form of the reimbursement of up to 100% of the total eligible and approved direct costs and of flat-rate financing of indirect costs on the basis of 25% of the total eligible direct costs. The level of the awarded grant represents a maximum overall figure – the final amount to be paid must be justified on the basis of the costs actually incurred for the project.

 

The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current “ERC Support for novel ways to highlight the work funded by the ERC and reach out a wider public” call for proposals is 16 December 2014.
