FP7: Era-chairs pilot

FP7 Capacities Programme: Research Potential
Deadline: 30 May 2013

The ¨ERA Chairs¨ Concept:
The objective is to support public universities and other eligible research organisations, with a demonstrated potential for research excellence, in developing their potential so that they can achieve excellence on a sustainable basis.
 Research organisations interested in appointing an ERA Chair will have to commit to introduce measures and activities to facilitate the structural change and put in place the conditions needed to develop excellent research and to fully benefit from the ERA Chair.

Activities should be focused on achieving concrete and clearly identified objectives.

The size of the ERA Chair research team to be recruited under the grant is expected to be at least of 300 months of full-time work equivalent (person/month). The ERA Chair holder will have flexibility in timely using the personnel according with the project needs.
