A decade ago, the EU Commission established a European Research Council (ERC), for the purpose of promoting European basic research of the highest scientific quality and supporting leading edge research within all fields of study. Financing from the ERC is now one of the highest accolades available to researchers in Europe. Since it was founded, around 7 000 researchers have received grants from the ERC, of which around 250 from Sweden.
As the ERC is now celebrating its 10th anniversary, a half-day conference is being arranged at the Oscars Theatre in Stockholm.
