We support the European Research Council

The European Association for Cancer Research joins with the European Academy of Cancer Sciences in noting with dismay the recent negative publicity about the European Research Council in the light of the resignation of its President, Mauro Ferrari.

We offer our full support to the ERC and we believe it should be cherished and further expanded to the benefit of science and society.
