The ten universities of the EUTOPIA alliance have been awarded eight Starting Grants from the European Research Council (ERC). The results were published during the recent EUTOPIA Week in Ljubljana. 

Three grants have been awarded to the University of Warwick, two grants have been awarded to Ca’ FoscariVrije Universiteit BrusselBabeș-Bolyai University and the University of Gothenburg have been awarded one grant each.

ERC grants fund researchers of any nationality and age to conduct frontier research on a topic of their choice. Interdisciplinary and pioneering research projects explore emerging fields with unconventional and innovative approaches.

The ERC Starting Grant in particular aims to support emerging researchers who wish to build a research group and conduct independent research across Europe. This funding scheme is open to promising researchers from any research field, who have shown clear leadership potential.

Ca’ Foscari’s two new ERC projects join the 17 ERC projects that are underway or have been completed, and attest to Ca’ Foscari’s policies for the attraction of talent and its Human Resources Strategy For Researchers (HRS4R). HRS4R is a certificate that gives public recognition to research institutions that have made progress in aligning their human resource policies with the principles set out in the European Charter & Code for Researchers.
