Davide Cantoni has received an ERC Starting Grant 2016
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.
