SFI ERC Support Programme
The SFI ERC Support Programme provides an additional overhead payment to the Host Institution of ERC award winners, which is designed to assist awardees, who may either have won their ERC award while working at an Irish Host Institution or who may have recently been recruited to an Irish Host Institution from overseas, to successfully carry out their ERC-funded research.
The aims of the SFI ERC Support Programme are:
Support available through the SFI ERC Support Programme is dependent upon whether the ERC awardee associated with the application was successful in winning their award while already based in an Irish Host Institution or whether they will be transferring their ERC award from another country to Ireland:
The award will consist of an indirect or overhead contribution to the host research body.
Where an application is made to this call that is associated with an ERC awardee that has either been recruited to Ireland following a successful application to the SFI Research Professorship programme or the SFI Future Research Leaders programme, or has an application under review to either of these programmes, the maximum award that may be requested is €150,000.
This programme will run as a rolling call for applications. Where the ERC award was associated with any Irish Host Institution, applications to this Programme should be received no later than six months after the date that has been agreed with the ERC for the commencement of the award. An alternative situation exists where an ERC awardee has been recruited to Ireland. In this situation, an application to this Programme may be submitted after the arrangements for relocation have been agreed (evidence of these arrangement is mandatory).
