The European Research Council (ERC) has set up the Proof of Concept scheme to help ERC grantees to explore the commercial or societal potential of an idea that was generated in the course of their ERC-funded projects. More information on ERC POC.
All Principal Investigators in an ERC frontier research project, that is either on going or has ended less than 12 months before 1 January 2019, are eligible to apply for an ERC Proof of Concept Grant in the ERC POC 2019 call. Two deadlines are still open : 25 April 2019 and 19 September 2019.

This workshop is organised by the National Contact Points (NCPs) for ERC in Belgium, (NCP Flanders, NCP-FNRS and EUROFED) to help ERC grantees based in Belgian Host Institutions to prepare an ERC POC application. Participation is free but registration is mandatory.
The workshop will be held in the morning, a detailed agenda will be available later.

Do not hesitate to contact one of the organisers should you have any question:
