EURAM PDW: Research Funding by the European Resarch Council (ERC)

As part of EURAM’s 2021 Annual Conference, we hosted a workshop on “Research Funding by the European Research Council (ERC)”. This workshop is part of a series of actions revolving around raising awareness regarding opportunities to obtain funding for management research. We commenced this initiative with funding opportunities by the ERC as one of the leading funding organisations for frontier research. The recording of the session can be found here

At the workshop we discussed a range of issues in a panel discussion format including:

  • Designing the proposed resesarch and demonstrating rigor, feasibility and significance
  • Communicating scholarly significance and societal impact to both management and non-management ERC evaluation
  • Navigating through the different stages of the evaluation process

The panellists for the workshop were past ERC award holders, academics that have served as evaluators of research proposals, ERC scientific research officers and EURAM executives:

Luis Diestre – Professor at IE University, ERC grant holder
Thomas Durand – Professor at Cnam, EURAM past-president
Jerko Markovina – ERC co-ordinator of SH1 panel  
Kathrin Möslein - Professor at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität, EURAM president
