Frontier research in the geosciences: hot topics and advancements
Convener: Claudia Alves de Jesus Rydin  | Co-Conveners: Barbara Romanowicz , David Gallego Torres 
Tue, 10 Apr, 19:00–20:00  / Room 2.15
Since 2007, the European Research Council (ERC), has had the mission to encourage excellent researchers in Europe through competitive funding, by supporting top researchers across all fields and of any nationality.

In more ten years, the ERC has funded over 7,000 researchers. It has created career opportunities for some 50,000 research staff, resulting in numerous scientific breakthroughs and leading to over 100,000 international scientific journal articles.

This Town Hall will be an opportunity to get a flavour of the ERC projects funded in the various disciplines of geosciences, through short presentations by grantees providing an overview of the major achievements. All researchers interested in innovative research are encouraged to attend.

Speakers:
Karin Sigloch
Bernard Marty
Giulio Di Toro
Karen Heywood
Nonne Prisle
