ERC awards another 17 Consolidator Grants

On 18 December 2019, the European Research Council (ERC) announced 17 new winners of its 2019 Consolidator Grants, in addition to the 301 mid-career researchers awarded 2019 Consolidator Grants recently. The 17 new winners will receive funding under Horizon 2020, worth up to €2 million per project, to build their own research teams and pursue their best ideas at the frontiers of knowledge. This adds up to a total of 318 researchers funded under this call, with a total of some € 640 million.

The ERC Consolidator Grants are awarded to outstanding researchers of any nationality and age, with at least seven and up to twelve years of experience after PhD, and a scientific track record showing great promise. Research must be conducted in a public or private research organisation located in one of the EU Member States or Associated Countries. The funding (average of €2 million per grant), is provided for up to five years and mostly covers the employment of researchers and other staff to consolidate the grantees' teams.
