The funding (maximum of Ä2 million per grant) will allow these Starting grantees to build their own research teams, engaging in total over 1,400 postdocs and PhD students as their team members. The ERC thereby contributes to supporting a new generation of top researchers in Europe.
The European Research Council is the first European funding organization for excellent frontier research. Every year, it selects and funds the very best creative researchers of any nationality and age, to run five year projects based in Europe. The ERC also strives to attract top researchers from anywhere in the world to come to Europe.
