EU funding

The 7th Framework Programme (FP7) was the European Union's Research and Innovation funding programme for 2007-2013. The current programme is Horizon 2020 but there are many projects funded under FP7 which are still running.

The European Research Council’s mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.

The ERC complements other funding activities in Europe such as those of the national research funding agencies, and is a flagship component of Horizon 2020.
