FORTH-ICS represents Greece in the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM), an organisation dedicated to the advancement of European research and development in the areas of information technology and applied mathematics.


The European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM), founded in 1989, comprises leading research institutions from 20 European countries, committed to the advancement of information technology and applied mathematics. ERCIM promotes European research and development in these areas as well as linking research to the industry sector. ERCIM is a de facto network of excellence and a "think tank" that contributes to the definition of research policies at a European and at an international level. ERCIM has established a strong presence, with more than 12,000 researchers, providing solid foundations for creating knowledge networks and potential for research collaborations throughout Europe. ERCIM aims to foster collaborative work within the European research community, and to increase cooperation with European industry.
