ERC: More Diverse Access

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 03 February 5 2019

February 2019

The European Research Council has published its External Communication Strategy 2019. In it, it explains how it aims to achieve a more diverse pool of applicants to ERC grants: with more applications from EU countries still lagging behind in ERC participation, more applications from bright minds from outside Europe, and more female applications. On Brexit, the ERC says that it is involved in efforts to ensure preparedness for all potential outcomes of the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the EU and will endeavour to provide timely information about the implications for current grantees and for future applicants.
