ERC anniversary event: Celebrating ten years of excellent research in Europe

Over the last ten years, researchers in Denmark have competed with researchers from all over the world to obtain prestigious five-year contracts with the ERC. It is a competition concerning original ideas, courage, curiosity, and excellent research.

One of the grantees is Professor Christian Adam Olsen from the Center of Biopharmaceuticals. He received an ERC Consolidator Grant in 2016.

The ERC's ten year anniversary was celebrated on 16 March 2017 at the University of Copenhagen with speeches, presentations, and short films about different aspects of the ERC. Recipients of ERC grants in 2015 and 2016 were honoured with flowers.
