EU grants for 11 UvA researchers

Eleven researchers from the University of Amsterdam (UvA) have been named as recipients of Starting Independent Researcher Grants from the European Research Council (ERC Starting Grants).

Starting Grants are large, individual grants awarded to promising young academics who demonstrate the qualities needed to become independent research leaders. Researchers each receive approximately 1,5 million euros to fund their work over a five-year period.

This year’s round saw the ERC award a total of around 660 million euros in grant money, providing funding for some five or six hundred European researchers.

With 11 grants awarded to researchers at the UvA, the UvA has the largest number of grant recipients of any Dutch university.
