This year the ERC will reach an important milestone: soon 10 000 scientists and scholars from Europe and beyond will have received ERC funding to pursue their best ideas at the frontiers of knowledge. During an online ceremony, the ERC will welcome the 10 000th grantee and will highlight a few other ERC grantees who, in different ways, have contributed to transform science and research.

Tune in to celebrate!
