In view of the major revision of the ERC panel structure for the 2021 and 2022 calls, the ERC Scientific Council has decided to publish the full panel structure well ahead of time.
In this new structure we would like to highlight that by the first time the Materials Science and Engineering has a specific panel, Panel 11 to which we are proud to contribute through different policy makers for the need of such a panel, thanks to the role of Materials as an enabler for science and technology.
This should allow the scientific communities to familiarise themselves with the changes in preparation for the first calls under the 2021 Work Programme.

There is now an ERC panel fully devoted to Materials Science.
