SAPIExcellence is an initiative promoted by Sapienza University to attract the best and most promising researchers, encouraging them to participate in the Marie Skłodowska-Curie (MSCA) and ERC programmes.

SAPIExcellence aims to provide concrete incentives, in addition to scientific ones, for excellent researchers who submit proposals in the framework of MSCA-IF and ERC indicating Sapienza as the Host Institution. The purpose is to increase the number and quality of submitted proposals, as well as the chance to obtain fellowships and grants funded by the EU Commission.

BE-FOR-ERC

In order to reach these objectives, Sapienza University has recently published the “BE-FOR-ERC Call” that will assign 5 fellowships for research projects of excellence lasting 12 months. The call is open to all research areas and scientific sectors. Project proposals are invited from principal investigators who have obtained their PhD (2-7 years before January 1, 2020) and hold a very promising scientific curriculum.

Each fellowship will provide funds for a total of €50,000 to be divided as follows:

  • €40,000 to fund an annual research grant Principal Investigator;
  • €10,000 to cover costs directly related to research activities.
