ERC week and Beyond

Over 140 events celebrating 10 years of ERC in Europe and around the world.

The "ERC Week” will run from the 13 to the 19 March. During this week, and throughout 2017, special ERC events will take place across Europe, from Lisbon to Berlin, from Strasbourg to Copenhagen. The celebrations will also occur in countries outside Europe to promote the ERC globally. A celebratory event (by invitation only) will be organised in Brussels.

This is the perfect opportunity to join the ERC's 10th anniversary, offering research institutions from around the world the chance to organise outreach events, supporting the work of the European Research Council both in and outside the EU. When it comes to celebrating the achievements of the ERC, it's "the more the merrier".
