DATACTIVE featured as success story at ERC 10th anniversary

We are very proud to share that DATACTIVE is featured in the ERC 10th anniversary celebrations as one of the success stories!

The European Research Council turns ten this year. The anniversary program ‘Beyond the first ten years‘, scheduled for March 21st in Brussels, highlights the key achievements and some among the successful ERC funded projects, while setting the stage for the coming years. During this event, Stefania Milan (DATACTIVE PI) will talk about ‘data politics at the grassroots’ in the section ‘ERC development’ stories. She will also participate in the evening talk show ‘Beyond the first 10 years’, discussing ideas for ameliorating ERC funding schemes. On March 20th she will participate in a dinner hosted by the ERC President to discuss with stakeholders how to ‘stimulate excellence’ and get more bottom-up research across the EU. You can find more about the celebration on the dedicated website. The program for March 21st will be live streamed.

The European Research Council (ERC) was set up by the EU in 2007 to fund excellent scientists and their most creative ideas. It supports cutting-edge research in all fields, and helps Europe keep and attract the best researchers of any nationality. Today, the ERC is a key component of Horizon 2020, the EU’s programme for Research and Innovation.
