JYU ERC Support process for Consolidator applicants, register by 26.10.2017

The fundamental activity of the ERC is to provide attractive, long-term funding to support excellent investigators and their research teams to pursue ground-breaking, high-gain/ high-risk research. JYU wants to support ERC applicants and runs two support processes yearly. The participants of the process can choose events and support possibilities which are meaningful for them.
