For applying for European Commission grants, specifically ERC ADVANCED GRANT, I need to get an official letter from the host instuttion that they support my proposal.
How is the procedure to get this letter?
Do I need to contact the institution research office OR I need to find a collaborator in that institution to recommend me to get that letter?
Do they need to review my detailed proposal to decide if they want to support me OR they review my CV only?
How long does this process take?
