Call overview

One prize of a value or EUR 10,000 will be awarded for activities that foster consultation and exchange with citizen groups to raise awareness on a topic, to address a societal challenge or to contribute to an issue in the public debate.

Call details

These activities can be undertaken based on preliminary or final project results as well as any particular result or output generated in the context of an ERC frontier research project. Examples of people and organisations that are likely to be engaged under this category include journalists, policy makers at regional, national or international level, non-governmental organisations, citizen or patient groups, product users. 

In view of its activity of supporting new ways of working in the scientific world, with particular attention to the open science approach, the ERC wishes to encourage outstanding science communicators among its Principal Investigators. The Public Engagement with Research Award is established to recognise those who successfully engage audiences outside their domain with ERC-funded research.

Public engagement is defined for the purposes of this prize as the involvement of the public in the design, conduct or dissemination of activities funded by the ERC. Engagement is a two-way process, involving interaction and mutual understanding for mutual benefit.

Eligibility

All Principal Investigators in an ERC frontier research project, that is either ongoing or has ended on or after 31/12/2019, are eligible to apply. In case of ongoing ERC frontier research projects, only activities completed by the submission deadline can be included in the application. Each Principal Investigator may submit only one application per ERC project under the 2022 work programme.

Eligible activities: All applications must refer to public engagement activities for an ERC-funded project, regardless of the sources of funding for the public engagement activities themselves. 

Budget

One prize of a value of EUR 10 000 will be awarded under this topic.
