ERC Grants at TU Graz

The European Research Council (ERC) of the European Commission supports outstanding researchers with highly endowed grants. Various grants are awarded to promising early-career researchers (Starting Grants), to excellent researchers already anchored in the research community (Consolidator Grants), to established research leaders (Advanced Grants) and to existing ERC grant holders for proof of concept (Proof of Concept).

At TU Graz two researchers are currently conducting research with ERC Starting Grants and one researcher with an ERC Consolidator Grant.
