The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded five Consolidator Grants to scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM). The recipients will use the funding to pursue research in quantum computers, sustainable aluminum applications, the regulation of protein functions, mechanisms related to obesity, and changes in forests.
Researchers at TUM have received a total of 140 prestigious ERC Grants to date. The ERC awards grants in various categories every year. Two Advanced Grants, five Starting Grants and three Proof of Concept Grants were recently awarded to TUM researchers.
Consolidator Grants are provided to researchers with between seven and 12 years’ experience since completion of a doctorate, and come with up to 2 million euros in funding for their projects.
