The main objective of ERCIM is to contribute to a leading role of Europe in ICT:

  • by building a European-wide, open network of centres of excellence in ICT;
  • by excelling in research and by acting as a bridge to applications;
  • by being internationally recognized as a major representative organisation in its field;
  • by acting as an interface for the non-EU member institutions within the European Community and other international organisations;
  • by cooperating with other international organisations in its field;
  • by promoting cooperation in research, technology transfer, innovation and training.

Thus creating added value for its members, for their countries and for Europe.
