Next month, the Fourth Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF 2010) opens in Torino, Italy, to discuss the frontiers of science and technology in Europe and to stimulate policies that bridge the gap between science and society. In this context, the current European research landscape can hardly be imagined without the innovative funding programs of the European Research Council (ERC), which has selected its 1000th grantee just over 3 years after its launch. As the new president of the ERC, I am particularly pleased to continue building on past achievements while preparing for the challenges ahead.
