The ERC is the primary “agency” of European funding for encouraging fundamental research conceived and conducted by individual researchers of recognized excellence.
Only one criterion: scientific excellence. Its recipients are research professors in Biology, Modeling, Mathematics, Oceanography, Physics, Astronomy, Robotics, Computer Science, and the Humanities, to name a few. And they are all leaders of an ERC project obtained with the logistical, administrative and financial support of Sorbonne University.
- 126 ERC in our research structures since the start of the program in 2007
