In addition to renewing and innovating legal research in the Netherlands, the Law Sector Plan also has objectives in the area of diversity and improving the position of young researchers.

For this reason, ERI strives for a diverse composition of the research cluster and its leader team. ERI also offers a total of 24 researchers/teachers (post-doctoral) the opportunity to significantly expand their research time, allowing them to strengthen their own (research) profile.

Furthermore, ERI funds a total of 9 AIO spots of the Department of Law at Utrecht University. All ERI researchers are embedded in the research cluster and within their own research group. With this, ERI gives an impulse to the development of talent of new and incumbent young legal researchers.
