Success for HFSP alumni in the latest competition for ERC Starting Grants

24 HFSP alumni have been awarded a Starting Grant from the European Research Council in the latest competition. The ERC Starting Grant has become a standard for innovative, bottom-up funding at the European level. Young scientists selected by HFSP at critical points of their careers continue to be successful in such highly competitive awards. Of the 24 HFSP awardees who received an ERC Starting Grant, 17 have been supported by HFSP postdoctoral fellowships, of whom 8 also received the HFSP Career Development Award. Eight have been awarded HFSP research grants, including 6 Young Investigator Grants. 

With the exception of Ulrike Sophie Eggert who received a grant for research in the physical sciences, all grants were awarded in the domain of the life sciences.
