Funding Health in Europe
European Research Council (ERC)
The European Research Council (ERC) is the first European funding body set up to support investigator-driven frontier research. Its main aim is to stimulate scientific excellence by supporting and encouraging the very best, truly creative scientists, scholars and engineers to be adventurous and take risks in their research. The scientists are encouraged to go beyond established frontiers of knowledge and the boundaries of disciplines.
The European Research Council funds every year excellent research projects in any scientific discipline, aiming at broadening the scientific and technological knowledge ("frontier research"). Top researchers of any nationality and from anywhere in the world can apply, as long as their ERC project will be carried out in a public or private institution based in Europe (EU Member State or Associated Country).
For more general information, please visit the ERC website.
