Date of publication of the call: 30 August 2016
Final deadline for submission: 30 December 2017


The call for proposals intends to contribute to the development of researchers affiliated with a research institution in Hungary and to the improvement of their applications in the support programs launched by ERC (Starting Grant (StG), Consolidator Grant (CoG), and Advanced Grant (AdG)), increasing the volume of ERC support as well as the international recognition of researchers and research institutions in Hungary. The call provides the opportunity for researchers affiliated with a research institution in Hungary to spend three to four months in order to conduct research and gain experience at a research group where the principal investigator is supported by a StG, a CoG, or an AdG. Researchers can gain direct experience on how to compose a successful ERC application, how to lead a research group supported by ERC, and how to submit a successful ERC application upon their return.

Who can apply

Host institutions and researchers are eligible to apply jointly as follows:

  • institutions of higher education, research centers, research institutions, budgetary organizations, institutions of budgetary organizations with a legal personality if they qualify as research institutions, with a seat and legal personality in Hungary

and

  • researcher with a PhD degree (with nostrification in case of non-EU countries) working in any field of science and affiliated with a research institution in Hungary being employed full-time, as a public servant or in other employee status by the host institution and meeting all further criteria detailed in the call.

Researchers already eligible to apply for AdG can only visit AdG grantees; those intending to apply for CoG can only visit CoG or AdG grantees; those applying for StG can visit StG, CoG, or AdG grantees. The declaration of the principal investigator of the ERC research group on the willingness to host the researcher for 3 to 4 months, to include him/her in the research project, and to assist him/her in gaining experience has to be attached to the proposal.

Scope of supported activities

In order to fully complete the activities included in the research and work plan of the thematic basic research proposal submitted to the NRDI Office the following expenses may be reimbursed: one roundtrip to and from the ERC research group, accommodation, local travel, per diem. In addition, the institution is entitled to an overhead of 3%. The total of the accountable expenses cannot exceed EUR 10,000 (HUF 3,150,000) for a three-month stay or EUR 13,000 (HUF 4,095,000) for a four-month stay. 

Available funds

In order to reach the goals of the call, the NRDI Office intends to secure a total amount of HUF 200 million for the period 2016–2017 from the NRDI Fund according to the law on the central budget and with reference to the program strategy of the NRDI Fund; the amount available for the disbursements in 2016 is HUF 100 million. Proposals may apply for a maximum of HUF 3.15 million for 3 months and a maximum of HUF 4.095 million for 4 months per project. The maximal intensity of the support is 100%, that is, completion of the projects does not require own sources.

Duration of the project

Duration of the project is minimum 3 months and maximum 4 months. Start of the project and accounting of the incurring costs is possible from the day following the decision of the NRDI Office at the earliest.

Submission of proposals

Submission of the proposals is possible until the indicated resources are available, by December 30, 2017, the latest. The NRDI Office evaluates the submitted proposals at the end of every quarter (March 31, June 30, September 30, and December 31). Proposals submitted electronically by 16:00 on September 30, 2016, will be evaluated in the first round. A proposal submitted until this submission deadline can be considered duly submitted if it is electronically finalized by the researcher and approved by the host institution, and if the printed version also reaches the customer service address of the NRDI Office. The postmark has to show a date before 24:00 on the 7th calendar day following the electronic submission.

Regardless of the discipline, the proposals have to be submitted in English.

ERC_16_MOBIL, Call for proposals relating to visiting research groups supported by ERC, Round 3-4
The call aims to further improve the already considerable success rate of Hungarian researchers affiliated to Hungarian research institutions in ERC funding programmes, thus increasing the number of ERC funded projects in Hungary and the international reputation of Hungarian researchers and research institutions. The call enables researchers having a legal relationship with a Hungarian research centre to do research and exchange information while spending three to four months in a research group whose principal investigator has already won StG, CoG or AdG funding. This allows researchers to gain hands-on experience in how to prepare a successful ERC project proposal and how to lead an ERC funded research group, increasing their chance to successfully apply for ERC funding when returning home.

In the jointly assessed third and fourth rounds the following applicants were selected for non-refundable mobility funding from the NRDI Fund.

To ensure value-based professional evaluation of proposals arriving in large quantities from the fields of discovery and applied research and innovation, to assess professional reports of funded projects and to prepare policy opinions, the NRDI Office intends to expand its expert pool in all fields of expertise.

Professionals who have registered in the database of the NRDI Office can become responsible contributors, as independent peer-reviewers, to the evaluation process in which the professional quality, novelty content and commercialisation perspectives of the proposals as compared to the requested funding should be assessed as core considerations.

The registration process can be initiated through the registration form of the NRDI Office’s website. Registration is continuously open.

Requested data within the expert registration form include:

  • personal data, contact details (necessary for contracting review assignments);
  • classification of professional skills and competencies and research areas (to get review invitations fine-tuned to your field of expertise);
  • topics of the previously reviewed proposals;
  • present and past jobs, interest networks (in order to pre-screening of conflicts of interest in a given rview assignment), education, scientific titles, most important publications and intellectual works demonstrating your professional experience;
  • language skills.

Professionals once registered in the database of experts may be invited by the NRDI Office to review submitted proposals, to assess professional reports of funded projects and to contribute to policy opinions.

Each proposal is reviewed by several independent experts at the same time. Experts selected from the database to review proposals, to assess professional reports and facilitate expert opinions will be contracted by the NRDI Office on a case-by-case basis. When concluding such a contract experts must declare that the review assignment is not obstructed by any conflict of interest whatsoever. Depending on the competition type, written expert reviews must be prepared in 15-28 work days and submitted electronically via the online review portal of the NRDI Office.

FURTHER INFORMATION
