ERC launches new mentoring scheme
Initiative directed to Portuguese institutions: regional or local offices to express interest in a programme designed to increase success rates

The European Research Council is launching a new mentoring initiative to target countries where the levels of participation and success rates in ERC calls for proposals have been so far modest. Local and regional support offices in these countries often struggle to identify international experts to provide coaching and advice for the ERC grant applicants they work with. The new scheme aims to identify ERC grantees and former evaluation panel members to serve as external mentors and reinforce the local programmes that exist to support ERC applicants.
