ERC

ERC – European Research Council

Established in 2007 by the EU in order to strengthen the opportunities for research, the ERC is a programme whose ultimate objective is to invest in Excellence. Open to all fields of Science, it offers the best talents various funding possibilities, depending mostly on the experience accumulated by the applicants: it ranges from the Starting and Consolidator Grants, dedicated to early-career scientists, to the Advanced Grants – suitable for those “Principal Investigators” who can claim a track-record of significant research achievements in the last 10 years. Obtaining an ERC grant is thus a veritable quality certification.
