Six outstanding researchers at NTNU have received grants from the European Research Council (ERC).
These researchers were awarded ERC grants:
- Edvard Moser Advanced Grant I
Neural circuits for space representation in the mammalian cortex (CIRCUIT)
- Edvard Moser Advanced Grant II
Cortical maps for space (GRIDCODE)
- May-Britt Moser Advanced Grant
Neural mechanisms for memory retrieval (ENSEMBLE)
- Bernt-Erik Sæther Advanced Grant
Stochastic Population Biology in a Fluctuating Environment (STOCHPOP)
- Jonathan Whitlock Starting Grant
Deconstructing action planning and action observation in parietal circuits in rats (RAT MIRROR CELL)
- Ayumu Tashiro Starting Grant
Understanding computational roles of new neurons generated in the adult hippocampus (AN07AT)
The award of a grant from the European Research Council (ERC) is the most prestigious funding a researcher can receive.
NTNU has designed the Onsager Fellowship and Outstanding Academic Fellows programmes as a means to double the number of ERC grants awarded to NTNU researchers from Horizon 2020 compared to the 7th Framework Programme.
