This year marks the 10th anniversary of the European Research Council (ERC), set up by the European Commission in 2007. The ERC funds exceptional individual scientists to carry out high-risk, high-gain research at the frontiers of knowledge. Over the last decade, Oxford Social Sciences have shown an outstanding track record of attracting significant ERC funding. This event celebrated the world-leading research and researchers supported by these grants. Reflecting the diversity of social sciences research at Oxford, the programme of talks encompassed wide and varied topics. Each of the speakers is the Principal Investigator leading at least one ERC award and their TED-style talks focus on powerful ideas generated and explored by their projects. This event was hosted by Professor Roger Goodman, Head of the Social Sciences Division and Chair of the Academy of Social Sciences, and organised by the Social Sciences Division’s Research and Impact Team.
