This project has received funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme in the panel ERC Starting grant under grant agreement No 810867.
The ERC’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. ERC grants are awarded through open competition to projects headed by starting and established researchers, irrespective of their origins, who are working or moving to work in Europe. The sole criterion for selection is scientific excellence.
ERC has the aim to recognise the best ideas, and confer status and visibility on the best
brains in Europe, while also attracting talent from abroad.
In the long term ERC looks to substantially strengthen and shape the European research
