ERC Funded Projects

The ERC operates according to a "curiosity-driven", or "bottom-up", approach, allowing researchers to identify new opportunities in any field of research. Accordingly the portfolio ERC funded projects spans a wide range of topics and research questions.

Since 2007, more than 6,500 projects have been selected to receive ERC funding throughout the EU Member States and the associated countries. The ERC has received over 62,000 project proposals for its calls.

Use the search facility to quickly and easily find examples of ERC funded projects.

How can you search?

Projects can be filtered according to funding scheme, call year, research area (panel/domain) and/or country of host institution.
You can also use the search box and enter free text words, for instance names of universities or principal investigators.

Where does the data come from?

Information displayed is automatically updated through the information available on the CORDIS platfom and can partially be exported in PDF format.
Only funded projects, whose grant agreements have been signed, appear in this section.

Please note that the structure and descriptions of ERC panels have changed over the years. The panel structures for each year can be found in ERC annual work programmes. Panels displayed in this tool are the panels the projects were selected in.
