Following the EU-UK Trade and Cooperation Agreement, which enables the UK's participation in Horizon Europe, the British Academy will be holding a webinar on Thursday 25 February, 9:30-11:00am for researchers in the humanities and social sciences interested in applying for the 2021 ERC Starting Grant call, which has a deadline expected at the end of the March.

The webinar will be led by British Academy Fellows who have experience with ERC grants and panels.

The aim of the webinar is to provide participants with detailed, practical information about the ERC Starting Grant scheme. Participants should gain a deeper understanding of the proposal and evaluation format and the key issues they are required to address in planning, writing and costing a proposal.

In order to participate and for the webinar to be structured as effectively as possible for you, we ask that you submit in advance either an outline of your proposal or, if you have it, a draft of the 'extended synopsis (B1)'. Please contact Emily Zerling ( by Monday 22 February to ask to register.
