International distinctions, research subsidies and awards

ERC grants

Europe offers funding to excellent researchers who want to undertake pioneering research. A special agency, the European Research Council (ERC), has been established to carry out this program. The ERC has four programs that offer financial support for such pioneering research: the ERC Starting Grant, the ERC Consolidator Grant, the ERC Advanced Grant and the ERC Synergy Grant. Researchers of every nationality and age are entitled to submit research projects. The following TU/e researchers have been awarded an ERC grant:
