PhD THESIS

My monograph thesis, in broad terms, deals with the European Research Council (ERC), which, early on, came to be portrayed as a 'Champions League' for scientists. The ERC's main aim has, from the very start, been to transform its research funding allocations into a pan-European benchmark for scientific quality. I approach this phenomenon by way of a longitudinal, qualitative study, looking at how the ERC has attempted to advance its benchmark in the low-consensus field of science. Drawing on 360 documents, 65 interviews, and three observations, I argue that the ERC, throughout its history, has made strategic use of status affiliations, status closures, and status effects in attempting to reach its main aim. My findings contribute to a fresh understanding of status construction process in low-consensus fields by emphasizing the triadic, organized, and self-reinforcing features of such processes.
