When scientific research is supported by a European Research Council (ERC) grant, this indicates a promising scientific idea or theory worth investigating, one with potential to generate new knowledge and innovations that can advance human progress. ERC grants are awarded through an open competition—the Olympics of research grants—to projects led by researchers working in Europe or associated countries.

Per capita, Israel has produced the second-highest number of ERC grant winners. This achievement reflects Israel’s continued academic and scientific excellence, along with the plethora of research opportunities in the country.
