The first ERC Calls in 2021 will be delayed due to the late adoption of the EU Budget 2021-2027 and the Horizon Europe programme. ERC-2021-StG and ERC-2021-CoG calls will be rescheduled to the earliest possible date next year, in order to preserve the Call calendar that was initially foreseen as much as possible. There will be more information about the dates around mid-January.
