ERC at the ESRF

European Research Council (ERC) grants are awarded for investigator-driven frontier research in Europe, on the basis of scientific excellence. The ESRF hosts several ERC grants, which are either led by ESRF scientist or ESRF long-term users and based on the use of the new capabilities of ESRF-Extremely Brilliant Source. These projects aim to carry out breakthrough research of the highest impact and thus contribute to advancing knowledge and addressing global challenges.
