The European Commission has announced it had selected 11 universities and research organisations to host European Research Area Chairs (ERA Chairs) funded under the Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development (FP7). The Chairs will permit these institutions to develop, in a particular field, the level of excellence required to successfully compete internationally for research funding and effectively widen participation in EU programmes.
Eleven universities and technical institutes in less developed regions in Europe are to receive up to €2.4 million each in EU funding to boost their research capacity though the appointment of the first ever "ERA Chairs", Máire Geoghegan-Quinn, European Commissioner for Research, Innovation and Science, announced on Monday. The initiative aims to bridge Europe's innovation divide by attracting top academics to organisations so that they can compete with centres of excellence elsewhere in the European Research Area (ERA).
