The European Research Council (ERC) will be the first pan-European funding agency for frontier research. Early stage as well as fully established investigators from across Europe will be able to compete for ERC grants with scientific excellence as the sole criterion for funding. The Scientific Council will direct the ERC’s scientific operations and ensure that its support is in accordance with the highest standards of science and scholarship. In pursuit of these goals, ERC has already begun an intensive programme of work to ready the ERC for operation as soon as the European Parliament and Council of Ministers adopt their decision on the 7th Framework Programme.
ERC hopes to launch a first call for proposals, targeting early stage independent investigators, with a deadline in early 2007.!
The European Science Foundation promotes high quality science at a European level. It acts as a catalyst for the development of science by bringing together leading scientists and funding agencies to debate, plan and implement pan-European initiatives.
