Editorial: The ERC is a rare success story in multilateral research funding. Its generous starting grants have had a profound impact on the quality of research in Europe.
Europe’s flagship science agency will be crucial to a post-coronavirus world. Slashing its budget will be a senseless act.
Thanks, ! A pandemic is no time to cut the European Research Council’s funding
You'd think that Europe’s leaders would want to strengthen the ERC, whose grant recipients will be key to understanding SARS-CoV-2, defeating COVID-19, and getting economies back on track. But no – they want to cut its budget by €1.3 billion.
A pandemic is no time to cut the European Research Council’s funding - support for an agency that will be essential to a post‑COVID future should not be diluted

Proposal to cut the 2021-27 budget by €1.3 billion, a reduction of almost 10% from what had been agreed by EU leaders in May, is unacceptable. Jean-Pierre Bourguignon is furious, and frankly, so are we.

Hear hear. A pandemic is no time to cut research funding.
A senseless act, indeed. One would expect the exact opposite. The European Dream needs of more and better science. ⁩ A pandemic is no time to cut the European Research Council’s funding

An excellent editorial on the absurd decision to cut funding. We have to protect this unique program, sign the petition 👉.

Excellent editorial in on the need to adequately fund the in the MFF (and other research programmes as well). Congrats
As we plan for the world post-COVID there are big choices to make around what we focus on and what gets cut. Investing in scientific research will help build a more resilient world to global pandemics, climate change and other threats we face
