The European Research Council (ERC) was established in 2007 with the objective to encourage high quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence alone. It complements other components of Horizon 2020. This Panel will discuss the following:
- How has the ERC delivered on its objectives?
- How has it been received by the various EU bodies, and by national authorities?
- What has been other effects of the ERC - e.g. concerning inter-European mobility of young researchers, and national research strategies?
The Panel includes researchers who have studied and/or participated in the ERC funding activities, and commentators.
