Davide Cantoni has received an ERC Starting Grant 2016

In his project "Demand for Democracy", Davide Cantoni studies the dynamics and the evolution of the democratic movement in Hong Kong.


ERC grants are awarded through open competition to projects headed by starting and established researchers. The sole criterion for selection is scientific excellence. The aim is to recognise the best ideas, and confer status and visibility on the best brains in Europe, while also attracting talent from abroad.

Since the first call for proposals was issued in 2007, LMU researchers have participated in this highly competitive program with very considerable success. So far, 60 LMU researchers have successfully applied for an ERC grant.
