Fundamental research is a high added value activity and cutting funds to invest on other venues and expecting higher return on investment is equivalent to cutting the gold hatching goose.

For us young researchers the ERC is synonymous with scientific excellence. Conserving such a prestigious and powerful funding resource is crucial for the next generation of European researchers to have the chance to make an impact.

ERC is the last major funding agency to foster independent research with quality as number 1 criterion. Clipping its wings through negative financial measures would manifest that, in contrast with leading economies, EU governance is clearly unaware of the long-term economic, social, and cultural impact of independent research on the society.
