ERC backs another 59 top researchers with Starting Grants

In addition to 291 early-career researchers already awarded ERC Starting Grants last December, the European Research Council has today announced another 59 grantees, also part of this 2015 competition. The funding comes from European Union Research and Innovation Programme Horizon 2020.

In the entire call, the ERC supported 350 researchers with almost €515 million. They received grants, worth up to €1.5 million each, to build their own teams and carry out research in all scientific domains at the frontiers of knowledge. The grants will enable them to employ in total an estimated 1,200 postdocs, PhD students and other expert staff.

Altogether, the highest number of grants in this 2015 competition was awarded to researchers in the United Kingdom (61), Germany (53), Netherlands (38) and France (35). The grantees represent 38 nationalities with Germans in the lead (56) followed by the Italians (37). The overall success rate in the competition was around 12%. (See the statistics)
