Within Horizon 2020, the European Research Council (ERC) offers attractive, long-term funding to support excellent investigators and their research teams to pursue ground-breaking, high-gain/high-risk research in any field (here).

Since the establishment of the ERC in 2007, CÚRAM researchers have been successful in securing ERC grants (here). Our FIs have also gained valuable experience and insight as active ERC panel members and remote evaluators for all ERC calls.
