  • Microbiome
    Microobiome - Spotlight on ERC projects
    ‘Microbiome’ is a term used to describe the community of microorganisms and their genetic information that inhabit a confined environmental niche, such as a host organism, soil or the ocean. The microbiome composition varies substantially depending on the environmental niche and can include different bacteria, archaea, fungi and viruses. Research has shown that these communities of microbes play crucial roles in host physiology and development, ecology and evolution.

  • Mathematics
    Mathematics: spotlight on ERC projects
    Unlike the common and extended idea that mathematics is an isolated and somehow lonely subject, research in this field, over the years, especially in recent ones, is continuously disproving this statement. Mathematics is probably much closer to real life than many other disciplines. It is playing an important role in countries’ economies and is key in the current data science era. To date, the European Research Council (ERC) has supported 377 projects in mathematics, representing more than EUR 600 million of investment in this research area. A sample of these projects is highlighted in this brochure published on the occasion of the International Congress of Mathematicians 2018 (ICM 2018), taking place from 1 to 9 August in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

  • Transport
    Transport and Mobility - Spotlight on ERC projects
    Transport research encompasses a wide variety of topics in areas ranging from transportation science and technology, impact assessment of transport on environment and health, to the transport policy. The overall aim today is to improve transport infrastructure, vehicles and operations, while reducing its environmental footprint and integrating societal aspects, for example user behaviour, traffic planning and urban design. This diversity of topics and approaches is reflected in the portfolio of transport research projects funded by the European Research Council (ERC) across the areas of physical sciences and engineering, life sciences and social sciences and humanities. A sample of these projects is highlighted in this brochure as their lead researchers will be presenting their results at the 18th Transport Research Arena, (TRA), taking place from 16 to 19 April 2018 in Vienna (Austria).

  • ERC grant schemes
    The European Research Council (ERC) is the first pan-European funding body designed to support investigator-driven frontier research and stimulate scientific excellence across Europe. Under the EU research programme 'Horizon 2020', the ERC has a total budget of over €13 billion for the period 2014-2020 available for individual researchers. The ERC aims to support the best and most creative scientists to identify and explore new opportunities and directions in any field of research (Physical Sciences and Engineering, Life Sciences and Social Sciences and Humanities), without thematic priorities. In particular, it encourages proposals which cross disciplinary boundaries; address new and emerging fields; and introduce unconventional and innovative approaches. The ERC awards long-term grants to researchers of any nationality and age from anywhere in the world who wish to carry out their research projects in a host organisation based in Europe. Scientific excellence is the sole evaluation criterion.
