ERC Funding


The ERC presents a great opportunity for economists to fund their research. However, applications from economists are low compared to other disciplines and have been declining. Funds are allocated between panels according to the number of applications that each panel receives, so this decline in applicants means that less money is going towards economics research. If we can increase applications to the economics relevant panel (SH1, markets, individuals and institutions) then this will increase the funds going to support economics research. We would like to encourage people to submit applications.

At the EEA Congress in Mannheim we ran a session that provided information on the opportunities for funding from the ERC. The information presented in this session is available below.
