The ERC on a visit to India to attract Indian research talent

The European Research Council (ERC) is on a India visit from Friday to March 15, 2013 to inform Indian researchers about opportunities in Europe, and to further develop and foster relations with its Indian counterparts. The ERC funds leading researchers from across the world, and their innovative ideas across all disciplines with up to Euro 3.5 million per grant. Since 2007, the ERC has awarded Euro 5.7 billion to over 3,400 scientists, both early-career and senior.
The ERC delegation in India is headed by its secretary general, professor Donald Dingwell. Dingwell said: “The ERC is pleased to visit India, which has long-standing traditions in science, learning and technology, and is fast becoming a dynamic global research centre. We are here to forge closer ties, to learn from one another, and to encourage excellent Indian scientists to perform some of their research in Europe. All of the ERC’s substantial funding schemes are open to top talent worldwide. In the current economic climate, it is more important than ever to invest in the very best talent in ground-breaking basic research, as it helps to boost global innovation and the competitiveness of all.”
