Call for ERC president applications and nominations

The Commission appointed an independent Search Committee that will make recommendations to the Commission on the best candidates for the position of president of the ERC. The Commission invites both individual applications as well as nominations by organisations and bodies’ representatives of the scientific and research community. The Search Committee will assess the nominations and applications received based on the factors and conditions set out in the statement on the search process and identify a shortlist of three candidates to be proposed to the European Commission to select the next ERC President. Applications and nominations are accepted until Friday 20 November 2020 at 17:00 (CET). The new ERC President is expected to be appointed by the end of the first quarter of 2021. The term of office is limited to four years, renewable once.
