Starting Grants for Three Jülich Early-Career Scientists

Jülich, 5 September – The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded funding in the form of Starting Grants to three young scientists at Forschungszentrum Jülich. The renowned research prizes honour two Jülich projects in the field of biotechnology and one in the field of nanoelectronics. The early-career scientists will each receive up to € 1.5 million in funding over the next five years to conduct fundamental research and set up their own research teams. The scientists awarded with the grants are Jun.-Prof. Julia Frunzke, Jun.-Prof. Dörthe Rother, and Dr. Christian Wagner.

The ERC was founded by the EU in 2007 and is the first pan-European funding organization for top researchers at various stages of their careers. The Starting Grants are aimed at excellent early-career scientists. To date, Forschungszentrum Jülich has received a total of ten grants from the ERC in the form of Starting Grants, Consolidator Grants, and Advanced Grants.
