About Horizon Europe and ERC Consolidator Grants
ERC Consolidator Grants are awarded to researchers who obtained their PhD seven to twelve years ago. ERC Consolidator Grants are part of Horizon Europe's Pillar I, "Excellent Science," and consist of grants of up to two million euros for a period of five years.
By November 2023, UiO had submitted approximately 830 applications to Horizon Europe, and ERC had approved more than 140 projects. The majority of the projects, 96, are within "Excellent Science." All in all, UiO's grants in Horizon Europe amount to around 1 billion Norwegian kroner.
