The ERC Starting Grants are issued every year by the European Research Council. They are intended for excellent young researchers with 2-7 years’ experience in a European research structure following their PhD. This year, 99 projects were selected by ERC in the life sciences field, including 9 conducted by researchers or lecturer-researchers working at Inserm.
Funding of up to €1.5 million per grant (a total of €485 million for the 325 people awarded grants on foot of this call for proposals) will be disbursed over a period of up to 5 years. It will enable the young researchers to build their team by recruiting post-doctoral fellows and PhD students to carry out their research project.
Grantees working in Inserm joint structures:
Hubert Cochet (University of Bordeaux)
Luc Friboulet (Gustave Roussy Institute)
Harry Sokol (UPMC)
Adam Williamson (Aix Marseille University)
