Do ERC (or other short-term funders) research projects result in
books? I am only an engineer whose gets a bit lost outside STM, but I
thought that books were written independently by researchers and that
funded research projects had papers (and similar low-investment texts)
as explicit research outputs?

NOTE I am not asking whether books count as research outputs (they do)
but whether they are the outputs of funded projects. I'll confine the
scope of the question to single-author books, rather than multi-author
books or edited collections.
