With funding up to 2,5 million € for a 5 year project, the ERC has become - in less than 10 years - one of the major funding bodies worldwide and certainly the most generous for Social Sciences and Humanities.

These are all relevant questions that will be raised during this workshop. Do not hesitate to bring yours!
