GIGA Grants is committed to assisting our scientific community in the acquisition and management of competitive research grants. We provide dedicated, basic-to-advanced level support, from project development and proposal preparation to the administration of awarded grants.
We aim to increase the competitiveness of GIGA grant proposals at the national, European and international levels; thus, we support applications across different funding instruments and programmes, including fellowships, single PI and consortium research projects with the Belgian Fund for Scientific Research, European Research Council (ERC), Horizon 2020 Societal Challenges pillar and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions (MSCA).
For grant applications in 2017, we have assisted in the submission of seven coordinator proposals:
- 6 ERC
- 1 Horizon 2020 collaborative research
- 1 MSCA COFUND
- 3 MSCA individual fellowships.
The GIGA Grants unit acknowledges financial support from the Walloon Region via the project GoGetERCs-DIFST 1680009.
