The European Research Council (ERC) will bring science to the discussions at the World Economic Forum (WEF) annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, from 15 to 19 January. The theme of this year’s edition is “Rebuilding trust”.
In a big election year, Brussel’s first Nobel Prize Dialogue will gather Nobel Prize laureates, thought leaders and scientists for an exciting evening about how to strengthen democracy.
For the first time, Nobel Prize Outreach and the European Research Council are partnering to organise a Nobel Prize Dialogue in Brussels. In a year when citizens will cast their votes in elections across the world, not least the European elections in June 2024, we are turning our attention to the art and science of democracy and decision-making.

The ERC dashboard is an interactive tool that features data on ERC funded projects and evaluated proposals.
The tool allows users to access project details with the help of filters, to generate statistics and to export data in different formats.
The ERC is composed of an independent Scientific Council and an Executive Agency.
The Scientific Council governs the ERC and is responsible for setting the ERC's scientific strategy.
It consists of eminent scientists and scholars.
The ERC Executive Agency (ERCEA) implements the ERC strategy as set by the Scientific Council and oversees the day-to-day grant administration.
