Target group is women scientists of all disciplines (2-12 years after PhD) who are interested in applying for a Starting or Consolidator Grant of the European Research Council (ERC) with a German host institution. The next deadlines for ERC Starting Grants and Consolidator Grants under the EU's framework programme "Horizon 2020" are scheduled for February and March 2015.

The event offers participants the rare opportunity to listen to and discuss the experiences of female ERC grantees and evaluators.

The event will open with in-depth information about the ERC and the application process. The ERC's gender equality policy will also be highlighted.
