The best-known European science prizes are the ERC Grants, which are awarded by the European Research Council (ERC). In this way, the ERC supports top scientists in funding basic research and visionary projects, as well as in developing new interdisciplinary areas of knowledge.
Researchers from the TUM School of Life Sciences are represented in all three funding categories: the ERC Starting Grant for early career researchers whose PhDs were awarded between two and seven years ago, the newly established ERC Consolidator Grant, which is aimed at researchers who have completed their doctorate up to twelve years ago, and the ERC Advanced Grant, which is aimed at outstanding, already established researchers.
