The FP 7 “Ideas” Programme European Research Council § Creates European Research Council (ERC) The FP 7 “Ideas” Programme European Research Council § Creates European Research Council (ERC) - a pan. European funding organisation designed to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through support to investigator-initiated frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence. § ERC will complement other funding schemes in Europe such as those within the 7 th Framework Programme and those of research funding agencies operating at the national level. 4

European Research Council Frontier Research A new understanding of basic research avoiding distinctions: between European Research Council Frontier Research A new understanding of basic research avoiding distinctions: between “basic” & “applied” research between “science” & “technology” between “traditional” disciplines The term “frontier research” reflects: going beyond these categories absence of disciplinary boundaries intrinsically risky character of ground-breaking research (highrisk/high-gain research) at/& beyond the frontiers of knowledge opening new opportunities & directions in research including those of a multi- & inter-disciplinary nature 5

European Research Council Strategic Aims Boost European excellence in frontier research investing in the European Research Council Strategic Aims Boost European excellence in frontier research investing in the best researchers and ideas by through competition at European level the basis of excellence as the sole criterion on raising incentives towards quality and aspirations of individual researchers providing benchmarks and leverage towards broader (structural) improvements in European research 6
