Tuesday 29 October: Information Day of the European research Council

The European Research Council (ERC) funds the very best, creative scientists in the field of fundamental research.

Through competitive funding, the ERC helps researchers to bring about unpredictable scientific discoveries and address challenges such as climate change, smart and green transport, public health and inclusive societies.

More than 200 ERC grantees are based in Italy and around 150 Italian ERC grantees work abroad. Meet some of them and find out more about their excellent research project at Città della Scienza!
