In 2017 the European Research Council will mark its 10th anniversary, an important milestone in making Europe a global centre of excellence in research. It is time for celebrations in Brussels and all across Europe and for reflection on the past decade and on the future.
Utrecht University takes part in this celebration, underling the outstanding job done so far by the Utrecht-based ERC researchers: since 2008, Utrecht University has hosted 68 ERC grants, divided in Starting Grant (allocated for five years to promising researchers who have proven that they have the potential to become independent leaders of research), ERC Consolidator Grant and the ERC Advanced Grant (to researchers whose ground-breaking work opens up new directions in their field).
Get inspired by outstanding researchers
On March 28th you will have the opportunity to meet and hear from first line ERC laureates from Utrecht University, UMC Utrecht and Hubrecht Institute and take part in an amazing day of celebration. Not only talks, but also interactive demonstrations and a tour of the research facilities.
