ERC AdG Principal Investigators are expected to be active researchers and to have a track record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years which must be presented in the application. For ERC-AdG-2023 call researchers are expected to present their achievements since 1 January 2013. 

If a Principal Investigator so chooses, his or her achievements over a longer period than the past ten years can be considered in circumstances like maternity, paternity leave, long-term illness or clinical qualification. For maternity, the track record considered can be extended by at least 18 months for each child born before or during the last ten years.

A competitive Advanced Grant Principal Investigator must have already shown a record which identifies them as an exceptional leader in terms of originality and significance of their research contributions.

Advanced Grants may be awarded up to a maximum of 2.5 Million Euros for a period of 5 years. However, this budget may go up to a maximum of 3.5 Million Euros to cover (a) eligible "start-up" costs for Principal Investigators moving to the EU or an Associated Country like Turkey from elsewhere as a consequence of receiving the ERC grant and/or (b) the purchase of major equipment (c) access to large facilities and/or (d) field work costs.
