23.07.2015 Award | William F. Martin
The European Union will support Prof. Dr. William F. Martin with around 2.4 million euros in the next five years. He was awarded the highly prestigious Advanced Grant in 2014 of the European Research Council (ERC). These Advanced Grants are awarded in a very strict selection process only to established, successful top researchers and are therefore considered a special scientific award. The special award to receive an ERC Advanced Grant, is also documented by the success rate: They fell at the current bid by approximately 4% to less than 8%.
