14 ERC Starting Grants for researchers at EuroTech Universities

More than 3,200 researchers applied for the renowned Starting Grants 2020 of the European Research Council. Among the laureates are 14 excellent researchers from the six EuroTech Universities. Each of the EuroTech Universities counts at least one grantee. The funding will help these early-career scientists and scholars to build their own teams and conduct pioneering research across all disciplines. The grants are part of the EU’s Research and Innovation programme, Horizon 2020.
