Description

Thomas König: Excellence in European research: understanding the ERC
Only 10 years after its inception, the European Research Council (ERC) is a well-established niche programme in the European research funding landscape. And, as it is dedicated to fund academic research, it has shaped, and redrawn, some of the rules and hierarchies of academic communities across Europe. In this presentation, I will shed light on the historical circumstances leading to the ERC’s establishment and discuss the intended, as well as unintended, impact on research across Europe, and specifically on the social sciences.
Thomas König holds a PhD in political science. He is Head of Strategy and Scientific Services at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS), Vienna. In 2017, he published “The European Research Council” with Polity Press (Cambridge).
