The SFI ERC Development Programme supports researchers based in Ireland that have submitted a proposal to the ERC Starting Grant, Consolidator Grant and Advanced Grant schemes, have been deemed fundable, but were not eventually funded by the ERC due to a lack of available programme budget. Importantly, the programme aims to support or improve a resubmission to an ERC funding scheme.

Utilising the Award
The SFI ERC Development Programme aims to provide enhanced support for investigators whose ERC proposals were deemed to have the requisite excellence to obtain an award from one of the three ERC grant programmes for individual researchers, but were unfortunately not funded due to a lack of available finance. SFI views that these awards should be utilised in one of two distinct ways:
SFI ERC Development Programme grants will be up to 50% of the original ERC proposal, or €500,000, whichever is lower, for a period of 24 months.
Proposals must be received by SFI within three months of the date on the applicant’s ERC notification letter, if they applied to the ERC with a Host Institution in the Republic of Ireland or within 12 months of this date if they applied to the ERC from elsewhere.
