Draw your ERC

ARE YOU AN ERC GRANTEE?

YOU COULD HAVE A WHOLE WEBCOMIC DEDICATED TO YOUR PROJECT

ERCcOMICS, coordinated by Université Pierre et Marie Curie - Paris 6 in partnership with La Bande Destinée, a French communication agency, is the result of an ERC call for proposals aiming to find “innovative ways to highlight ERC projects”.

It is a creative and ambitious 4-year project that exploits the power of visual storytelling through webcomics to promote and explain the achievements of ERC funded projects and the benefits of the ERC funding scheme for technological and scientific development, as well as for society as a whole. 

Each comic will be the result of a close cooperation between the ERC grantee, the ERCcOMICS team and a comic artist. Depending on the subject, the webcomic could be a fictional or documentary story of any genre: science fiction, historical, thriller, autobiographical. Each webcomic, before publication, will always have the grantee’s final validation. 

The webcomics will be widely disseminated, in several EU languages, and through a great variety of communication tools and channels. 

Each webcomic will be constituted of ca. 50 pages, which will be published in 10 chapters over a period of one year.

If you are willing to participate in this venture, send an email to info@erccomics.com with the following information, by April 30th, 2016.

UPDATE : The application for «Draw your ERC» is closed. Many thanks to all participants!

We will communicate the selected project on the 30 of June.

The ERCcOMICS Team
