Resumen

ERC: Ten Years Later
The European Research Council (ERC) was founded in 2007 as an organization to fund frontier research in all areas of knowledge through pan-European competitions. Ten years later ERC has become a prominent actor in the European research landscape after funding more than 7000 projects carrying out top-quality research. The conference presents the main achievements met during these ten years, highlighting the key elements that are behind ERC's success. In addition, the overall performance of researchers based in Spanish research institutions will also be presente
