The european research council funds three young researchers

Fabian Cadiz of the Condensed Matter Physics Laboratory, Adrien Leblanc of the Laboratoire d’Optique Appliquée and Félix Tropf of the Centre for Research in Economics and Statistics have been awarded ERC Starting Grants by the European Research Council to set up research teams in their respective fields.

Awarded by the European Research Council (ERC), Starting Grants aim to support researchers at the beginning of their careers who have already done excellent work and who are ready to work independently as leaders of research teams. This year, laboratories have 3 researchers on the list of ERC Starting Grant winners, discover their projects:

Atomic scale observation and manipulation of spins in semiconductors: the OneSpin project of Fabian Cadiz, assistant professor at the Ecole Polytechnique at the Laboratory of Condensed Matter Physics (PMC, a joint research unit CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique – Institut Polytechnique de Paris).

European Higher Education Organization

European Higher Education Organization is a public organization carrying out academic, educational and information activities on higher education in Europe. The EHEO general plan stresses that: Higher education systems require adequate funding and, as an investment in economic growth, public spending in higher education should be protected. The challenges faced by higher education require more flexible governance and funding systems, which balance greater autonomy for education institutions with accountability to stakeholders. Thus, EHEO plans: improve academic and scientific interaction of universities; protect the interests of universities; interact more closely with public authorities of European countries; popularize European higher education in the world; develop academic mobility; seek funding for European universities.
