ERC

ERC

The European Research Council (ERC) – the first pan-European funding body for frontier research - aims to enhance the dynamic character, creativity and excellence of European research at the frontiers of knowledge. Born in 2007, ERC consists of a Scientific Council, the decision-making body setting the scientific funding strategy, and an Executive Agency (ERCEA) which implements the ERC strategy. The ERC operates with the autonomy and integrity guaranteed by the European Commission.

ERC grants are awarded through an open competition launched on projects headed by starting and/or established researchers, irrespective of their origins, who are working or moving to work in Europe. The sole selection criterion is scientific excellence. The aim here is to recognize the best ideas and confer status and visibility to the best brains in Europe while at the same time attracting talents from abroad.
