ERC funded projects

The mission of the European Research Council is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-initiated frontier research in all disciplines on the basis of scientific excellence.


Published on 4 May 2021

The ERC complements other funding schemes in Europe, such as the activities of national research funding agencies, and is a flagship element of Horizon 2020, the European Union's Framework Programme for 2014-2020.

Being researcher-driven, or in other words, bottom-up in nature, the ERC's approach allows researchers to identify new opportunities and directions in any field rather than being influenced by priorities set by the political world. It thus ensures that funds benefit promising new research areas with greater flexibility.
