Within the framework of their sectoral initiatives, the Federal Government funds basic technologies that promote development in central fields of application and thus work as a growth driver in many business fields.
The European Research Council (ERC) funds excellent science at a European level. It provides competitive funding to outstanding researchers undertaking curiosity-driven, often basic research with the potential to open up new frontiers in science. Proposals are accepted from all scientific disciplines following a bottom-up principle. Projects crossing the boundaries between academic disciplines are particularly welcome.
