Organisation and Working Groups
The European Research Council (ERC) consists of a Scientific Council and an Executive Agency.
The Scientific Council (ScC) is the decision making body of the ERC and sets the ERC’s scientific funding strategy.
The ERC Executive Agency (ERCEA), implements the ERC strategy as set by the Scientific Council, and is in charge of the day to day grant administration.
The ERC operates with autonomy and integrity guaranteed by the European Commission, to which it is accountable.
