The European Research Council (ERC) has been continuously monitoring international participation through its Strengthening International Participation working group. As a result, "Implementing Arrangements" have been signed with key funding bodies and science ministries around the world. These arrangements provide opportunities in Europe for early-career scientists supported by non-European funding agencies to temporarily join a research team run by an ERC grantee. The purpose of the arrangements is to encourage, develop and facilitate such opportunities.

Currently the following arrangements are in place:
