Monday afternoon [from 1200-1730], November 27, there will be a meeting to provide detailed information about ERC grants. The meeting will be held at the CWI, in the Turingzaal of the Congress Centre. The meeting is organized jointly by PWN, the committee Research of PWN and the Tafel Wiskunde of NWO Science, as they feel that the number of ERC proposals granted to mathematicians in The Netherlands could be increased. We will have in-depth discussions on how this can be achieved.
The meeting will start with a presentation by Joan Vazquez Molina of the Brussels ERC Office, section mathematics. He will provide an overview of the grant schemes and the evaluation flow, which should help understand how to write a competitive proposal. He will also share statistics relevant to Dutch mathematicians and reserve plenty of time for Q&A.
Next, five excellent scientists [at the early, mid, and advanced career level] will share their experiences in what it takes to write a successful ERC proposal. Confirmed speakers are Arjen Doelman, Martijn Kool, Stéphanie van der Pas, Lenny Taelman and Ronald de Wolf.
The information session will end with a discussion, where questions can be asked to all speakers, or experiences can b shared. There will also be ample time and opportunity to catch up over lunch, tea and/or drinks and have further discussions.

1310-1335: Joan Vazquez Molina (ERC Office, Brussels)
