ERC grants: Good news for EU-LIFE centers, but with a bitter aftertaste
EU-LIFE European research centers obtained 14 new ERC Starting and Consolidator grants in the latest competitions. As a whole, EU-LIFE partners have a success rate of at least three times higher than the general success rate of ERC Starting and Consolidator grants. But this news comes with a bitter aftertaste, as the announced cuts in the Horizon 2020 budget (including ERC) due to the so-called Juncker's plan may now jeopardize Europe's competitiveness in future research.
