EU Research Awards

MCN member Professor Jonathan Harrington has been awarded an ERC Advanced Investigator Grant for the second time


The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded four Advanced Investigator Grants to LMU researchers in the fields of biological chemistry, immunology, linguistics and artificial intelligence.

The MCN member, Prof. Dr. Jonathan Harrington (Institute for Phonetics and Speech Processing), has won for the second time an Advanced Investigator Grant in the ERC’s latest funding round.

ERC Advanced Investigator Grants are each worth up to 2.5 million (in exceptional cases as much as 3.5 million) euros over 5 years, and are intended for established researchers in all disciplines who wish to undertake highly ambitious and innovative projects that promise to break new ground in their respective fields.

Proposals submitted by researchers based at LMU have been notably successful in the ERC’s highly competitive funding programs since the agency was set up in 2007. In fact according to the latest “Annual Report on the ERC’s Activities and Achievements”, LMU has received more ERC grants than any other university in Germany.
