Sapienza University of Rome, Italy is publishing a call for selections, henceforth “BE-FOR-ERC”, for the conferral of 5 fellowships for the development of a 12-months excellence research project.
The BE-FOR-ERC Call is part of the “SAPIExcellence” Programme, an initiative fielded by Sapienza University to attract the best and most promising researchers by promoting their participation in Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) and European Research Council (ERC) funding schemes.
The BE-FOR-ERC fellowships operate on a 'bottom-up' basis and applications can be made in any field of research included in one of the 3 macro-areas and relative ERC scientific sectors, as defined in Annex 1.
Each fellowship will receive €50,000 as follows:
- €40,000 to fund an annual research stipend (“assegno di ricerca”) to the PI receiving the fellowship.
- €10,000 for other costs related to research activities described in the research proposal
The fellowship will last 12 months and it must begin within 6 months of the fellowship conferral.
The application deadline is 14 June 2019 at 2:00 pm.
