You will find links to the registration at the bottom of this page. 

Conditions for the reading days

  • Only by preregistration
  • You must sign Declaration of Confidentiality
  • Photocopying or photos of the applications are not allowed
  • Applications cannot be taken out of the reading room

Who can participate

The reading days are only open for researchers at Norwegian institutions (universities, university colleges, research institutes etc.) and for EU-advisers who are employed by Norwegian institutions. Please use your institutional e-mail address when you register.


This is an individual reading session only, and it does not include tutorials about the ERC. In order to participate you should be involved in preparing a proposal and familiar with the various ERC grant schemes, as well as the conditions for participation and proposal documents.

Selecting proposals for the reading day

The applications are available as paper copies. Due to a combination of logistics and transportation, you will only be able to read the proposals that you selected beforehand. Each participant will be able to select up to three proposals. This is done in the registration form. If you have problems accessing the list of proposals on your mobile device, please register from a PC. You can find abstracts for all ERC funded projects on the ERC web page:  


  • You should not participate if you are in quarantine or if you have corona symptoms

Future Reading Days

Additional reading days will be added to this page when they have been decided. Furthermore they will be announced under "Events" at the Research Council web page, in newsletters and via twitter, @erc_ncp


Once in a while we are sending out a newsletter about MSCA and ERC in Norwegian. If you want to subscribe to it or to one of the other Horizon Europe newsletters you can sign up here:

Tutorials on ERC

A few times each year we are organising courses on how to write an ERC Grant proposal in collaboration with some of the large universities. The courses are announced at the Research Council of Norway events page.

We strongly recommend that you get in contact the EU-advisors/External funding advisors at your institution. They can tell you if they organise local ERC courses. If you do not know who they are; check the web page of your institute or faculty. They can advise you on the internal assistance that you can receive from them and the institution, as well as any project establishment support. Otherwise you may also contact us, the National Contact Points for ERC (NCP), see below. All information regarding ERC applications and grants are available at the ERC web site:

The ERC has a YouTube channel where you can find instructional videos, called 'ERC Classes', that explain in an entertaining, practical way all you need to know about the application and evaluation process.
