ELAN funds junior researchers (postdocs, max. 38 years of age) for a duration 12 months (personnel and other costs). Maximum funding is 50,000 EUR.
First and foremost, funding is provided for projects of highly qualified young investigators and newly established groups. Besides this, pilot projects are supported and financial gaps in on-going investigations are bridged (“standard program”). It is intended to enable as many qualified investigators as possible to raise further funding from external grant providers.
