On Tuesday, June 11, 2019, the University of Bucharest hosts the Information Session of the European Research Council at the Faculty of Law, Constantin Stoicescu Hall (Mihail Kogalniceanu Blvd., 36-46, 1st floor). The event is open to researchers across Romania who wish to learn more about what the ERC could do for them.
Organized by the European Research Council in partnership with the University of Bucharest, the event will include an information session for potential applicants with representatives from ERC’s scientific department and grant management department, Q&A session with grantees and a round table discussion on the Romanian research landscape in relation to ERC, moderated by Andrzey Jajszczyk, Scientific Council Member of ERC.
The European Research Council was established by the European Commission in 2007 with the aim of encouraging the highest quality research in Europe. The concept is simple, competitive individual funding for researchers with great ideas, across all fields.
ERC grants are awarded through open competition to projects headed by starting and established researchers, irrespective of their origins, who are working or moving to work in Europe. The sole criterion of choice is scientific excellence.
The ERC approach allows researchers to identify new opportunities and directions in any field of research, rather than being led by set priorities. This ensures that funds are channeled into new and promising areas of research with a greater degree of flexibility and that scientists are the ones driving the development of their field.
