Ten Years of the European Research Council

Some 7,000 top researchers, including six who later became Nobel Prize Winners, have been supported in Europe by the European Research Council (ERC) to expand the frontiers of our knowledge and draw us nearer to the solutions. To mark the tenth anniversary, research institutions and national authorities in Europe will hold various events during the “ERC Week” from 13 to 19 March 2017. Celebrations will also take place throughout 2017 and around the world, in the USA, India, Japan and other countries. Among more than 100 events, there will be citizens’ science experiments at the Tate Gallery in London, a citizens´ dialogue session with Commissioner Carlos Moedas and Nobel laureate and ERC grantee Jean-Marie Lehn in Strasbourg, an exhibition at the Madrid Science and Technology Museum, and an ERC celebration with the European Parliament President Antonio Tajani in conjunction with the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome that established the European Communities. The ERC Week will conclude with a scientific conference and celebration in Brussels on 21 March.
