ERC bloc

Europe encouraging innovative ideas

The leading pan-European funding agency, the European Research Council (ERC) makes annual awards to researchers with innovative ideas. Thus, the agency wants to encourage "research at the frontiers of knowledge".



A lab on a European scale

Creating new services and developing new technologies in sectors like the quality of life, cities, energy and media is the goal of EIT ICT Labs, a major European laboratory. In cooperation with 22 other European partners, Inria is in charge of coordinating the "French node" of the network and the research dimension.
