Three researchers in MPLS departments have been awarded prestigious ERC Consolidator Grants.

European research council grant success for mpls researchers

These ERC awards are made to outstanding mid-career researchers who demonstrate a scientific track record showing great promise.  The funding, which averages 2 million Euros per grant, is provided for up to five years, and mostly covers the employment of researchers and other staff to consolidate the grantees’ teams.  

Professors Kylie Vincent and Philipp Kukura in the Department of Chemistry both won awards, as did Professor Tamsin Mather in the Department of Earth Sciences.

The President of the European Research Council, Professor Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, commented: ‘This ERC funding will allow ambitious scientists to establish or strengthen their teams in Europe and be truly creative in their research. Beyond a push to the grantees’ careers, this European support will offer an excellent working environment for younger researchers at doctoral and post-doctoral levels. We look forward to see many of these daring ideas come to fruition, to the benefit of Europe at large.’
