ERC Grants at the University of Vienna

The funding of pioneering basic research is one of the priorities of the European Union. To this end, the European Research Council (ERC) has been established. To receive support, research projects must have a high potential for innovation. 85 ERC grants have already been awarded to researchers of the University of Vienna since 2007.

"ERC grants enable leading-edge research and are an important indicator of the international competitiveness of a university."

Heinz W. Engl, Rector of the University of Vienna
