Draw your ERC #2

ARE YOU AN ERC GRANTEE?

YOU COULD HAVE A WHOLE WEBCOMIC DEDICATED TO YOUR PROJECT!

ERCcOMICS, coordinated by Pierre and Marie Curie University-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 way to highlight ERC projects”.

It is a creative and ambitious 4-year project which 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 webcomic is 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 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.

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

We will communicate the selected projects in July 2017.

The ERCcOMICS Team
