On 11 June 2019, the University of Bucharest will host an event dedicated to exploring opportunities for Romanian researchers with the European Research Council. Organised by the European Research Council, 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 Andrzej Jajszczyk, Scientific Council Member of ERC.

The European Research Council, set up by the EU in 2007, is the premiere European funding organisation for excellent frontier research. Every year, it selects and funds the very best, creative researchers of any nationality and age, to run projects based in Europe. The ERC offers four core grant schemes: Starting, Consolidator, Advanced and Synergy Grants. With its additional Proof of Concept grant scheme, the ERC helps grantees to bridge the gap between grantees' pioneering research and early phases of its commercialisation.

The event will be held at the University of Bucharest’s Faculty of Law - Constantin Stoicescu Hall (Mihail Kogalniceanu Blvd., 36-46, 1st floor).
