This Programme supports Croatian researchers in setting up collaboration with Principal Investigators of European Research Council (ERC) programmes with the aim of gaining experience and preparing their own proposal for ERC calls. The Programme funds research visits to ERC Principal Investigators in the duration of 1 to 6 months.

Four calls have been published within this Programme (ERC-2017-05, ERC-2017-11, ERC-2018-05, ERC-2019-10) and six young scientists were given the opportunity to visit respected European scientists.
