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. Our guests are representatives of and stakeholders in the Swedish research system. In addition, all Swedish ERC grant holders over the years and other prominent researchers have been invited.

Keynote speakers

Professor Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, President of the European Research Council (ERC)

Dr Anna Lönnroth Sjödén, Head of Unit (Life Sciences), ERC Executive Agency

Mrs Helene Hellmark Knutsson, Minister for Higher Education and Research

A full programme will be published on this website later this spring. The conference will be held in English.
