about the ERC / FAQ Starting Grants
Which institutions can host an ERC Starting Grant research group?
The host institution for an ERC Starting Grant research group can be any legal public or private entity, which has the infrastructure and capacity to carry out a frontier research project, i.e. universities, non-profit research organisations or research-performing companies.
The host institution must be situated in the European Union or in countries associated to the Framework Programme, like for example Switzerland, Norway or Iceland. An updated list of all eligible countries is provided at CORDIS.
In addition, international organisations like CERN, EMBL, ILL, ESO, ESRF and EMBO may also act as a host institution.
