If the ERC has been so successful in the past at improving life for so may Europeans, why cut the budget?

I have seen the ERC funds as instrumental for European institutions to keep their thought leaders and shapers of the future in the European research landscape. Reducing the commitment to basic research as funded by the ERC would over time result in a 'brain-drain' to the USA and Asia.

La recherche fondamentale fait gagner du temps quand l'inattendu se produit. Nombre d'applications découlent d'une bonne connaissance de l'univers (matériaux, technologies, etc.). La science n'est pas une mode.
