Dear European Research Council Executive Agency,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

Could you please share information about the number of Starting and Consolidator grants that were scored as A, B and C after Steps 1 and 2, in each of the calls in the last 10 years?
I understand that first-submissions and resubmissions can be included - if you can provide these two separated, it would be even better.

Thank you very much!

Yours faithfully,
Dr. Joao Frade, Agencia Ejecutiva del Consejo Europeo de Investigación

Dear Dr. Frade,


We refer to your request submitted under Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 via
the website “”.


At the outset, please note that “” is a private third-party
website and has no link with any institution of the European Union.
Therefore, the European Commission cannot be held accountable for any
technical issues or problems linked to the use of this system. The private
third party running the specific website is responsible and accountable
for the processing of your personal data via that website, and not the
ERCEA. For further information on your rights, please refer to the third
party’s privacy policy.


Your request has been handled by the ERCEA as a request for access to
information under the Code of Good Administrative Behaviour. More
specifically, your request concerns, firstly, “information about the
number of Starting and Consolidator grants that were scored as A, B and C
after Steps 1 and 2, in each of the calls in the last 10 years” and,
secondly, information about first-submissions and resubmissions, in case
they can be included.


As regards the first part of your request, please see below a table
including the number of Starting and Consolidator grant applicants during
the last 10 years, as requested by you. The number of evaluated proposals
is indicated per year and per score achieved. Please note that not all
proposals scored A could be ultimately funded due to budget limitation.

As regards the second part of your request, unfortunately ERCEA is not in
possession of data which could indicate in a clear, reliable and
systematic manner how many of the received research proposals are
first-submissions or re-submissions. Therefore, we are not able to reply
to this part of your request.


We hope the information provided is of help to you.
