Insights from obtaining an ERC grant
Several IMISCOE members have received large and prestigious grants from the European Research Council. Many others have tried without succeeding, and the success factors can be difficult to pin down. Based on his experience of applying, failing, applying again and succeeding, Jørgen Carling has written a paper that extracts insights for future applicants: Pathways to an ERC grant: Learning form success and failure. Jørgen is a Research Professor at the Peace
Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and has a member of IMISCOE for more than a decade. His current ERC project is called Future migration as present fact and combines theory development with empirical research in West Africa.
