Third Funding Stream for the ERC?
There's news from Brussels of the ERC introducing a third, intermediate funding scheme. They currently provide funding for 'Starting Researchers' and 'Advanced Researchers', but nothing for those who fall between these two stools. So, if you're more than 10 years from your PhD but not yet in line for a Nobel Prize, there's nothing for you. It's currently being talked about as a 'Consolidating' award, and, if it does get the green light, will be introduced in 2011. We watch with interest.
