Meet with ERC Panel Members
The European Research Council (ERC) provide attractive, long-term funding to support excellent investigators and their research teams to pursue ground-breaking, high-gain/ high-risk research. Research funded by the ERC is expected to lead to significant advances and to set a clear and inspirational target for frontier research across Europe.
This year the Research Development EU team proposes to focus on the evaluation process. Dr Fiona Kernan from the ERC Executive Agency will give some general information on the process. Following her talk, three ERC Panel Members will share their experience with us.
