Impact of ERC Research

A new independent study published in September, shows the impact of the European Research Council’s (ERC) funded research. According to this study, 73% of projects evaluated have made breakthroughs or major scientific advances. The report also found that the ERC is achieving its goals of funding high-risk/high-gain projects and interdisciplinary frontier research. The study furthermore found that impact went beyond scientific spheres (into economy and society), despite that this aspect was not taken into account at the time of funding.
