about the ERC / FAQ Proof of Concept
Does the Proof of Concept Grant also support ideas generated in ERC-projects from the Social Sciences and Humanities?
The Proof of Concept Grant is open to ERC-projects from all scientific domains. Of course innovations can also feed into ventures aimed at addressing social and environmental goals which may be in non-profit sectors.
Projects of this kind must nevertheless prove a significant societal or economic benefit. The ERC would for example not foresee to fund scientific conferences with the Proof of Concept Grant.
