Since 2007, the Executive Agency of the ERC (ERCEA) has funded projects in a rigorous process that is based exclusively on excellence and comes with no predetermined priorities. ERC grants (Starting Grants, Consolidator Grants and Advanced Grants) are awarded for a maximum of five years and for a specific amount. The grants awarded have led to the recruitment of six new researchers on average to constitute and/or expand the research group for the corresponding project. The ERC allows researchers to choose the university or research centre where they wish to conduct their project, which has evidently led to many EU universities taking measures to attract or consolidate these researchers at their institutions. In this context, it can be seen as a step in the right direction to devote resources to offering permanent contracts to researchers who express a firm interest in carrying out their project at the UAB.
