Serving Science

Over the last 40 years of coordinating science and research networking programmes, ESF has built up a robust network and strong reputation in the international science community. It has also achieved a high level of expertise in science management. In addition, ESF is now focusing on providing valued services to science and research in Europe.

Some of the activities where there is a need for support are peer review services, for example for grant schemes and corporate Foundations, evaluation of institutes and research programmes, research conferences, developing more effective means for career tracking and measurement and managing important EU contracts such as MERIL (Mapping of the European Research Infrastructure Landscape).
