Individual High risk/high gain projects
About the grant
The aim of this type of grant support is the widening of the scientific basis able to produce excellent, internationally-competitive research results and obtain prestigious individual projects. The realisation tool is targeted support for exceptionally talented and motivated researchers and their teams with original, highly innovative and usually high risk projects, with the real potential to influence the research field and become significant in the international field. The successful project applicant should have clear potential to be successful in ERC grant competition or similarly prestigious individual grants. An indispensable aspect of this type of grant support is the motivation of MU faculties/workplaces to invest in exceptional scientific talent.
The call is opened once a year, usually in September. The Rector has the right to decide not to open the call in the given year.
