Join us for BIST Career Week to prepare for your future! The week will consist of five days packed with morning workshops and afternoon round tables, with inspiring speakers from different backgrounds, trajectories, and jobs.
The workshops will give participants tools and resources to help make career decisions, boost their employability, prepare for interviews, and more.
This year’s round tables will be focused on a variety of career possibilities including scientific group leadership, science communication, pharma and industry, data science, and consultancy. Wherever your next move may be (inside or outside academia!), the BIST Career Week is for you.
Workshop 5: European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants
Stewe specifically helped to prepare and review over 60 ERC proposals during his time at ICFO, with one of the highest success rates in Europe for an institute of similar size. Thanks to this experience and track-record, Stewe has a comprehensive overview of the ERC programmes´ aim, focus, function and evaluation criteria. He now runs his own consultancy, BekkResearchSupport, which focuses on in-depth grant preparation services for the ERC calls and the physical sciences and engineering communities.
As a grant consultant, he applies this expertise to support individual scientists and institutions prepare competitive grant proposals. Since 2018, he has been focusing on the most prestigious of all European funding schemes, the European Research Council (ERC), while also supporting collaborative proposals within the H2020/HEurope and national funding programmes. Among his clients are world renowned scientists working at Max-Planck Institute (Germany), CNIO (Spain), HiTS (Germany), IMDEA Nanociencia (Spain), The Arctic University/EMBL Nordic Partnership (Norway) among others, and he has consulted clients from Belgium, Germany, Norway, Spain, UK and the US.
