TUM-IAS is proud to announce that Rudolf Mößbauer Tenure Track Professors Job Boekhoven (Supramolecular Chemistry) and Michael Knap (Collective Quantum Dynamics) have both been awarded an ERC Starting Grant; TUM-IAS Carl von Linde Senior Fellow Professor Daniel Cremers has received an ERC Proof of Concept Grant. The topics of the projects include the production of synthetic active droplets (project ActiDrops), constrained quantum dynamics (project ConsQuanDyn) and simultaneous localization & mapping for augmented reality (project SLAM4AR).

Each year, the European Research Council awards its prestigious ERC Grants to fund cutting-edge research projects in various categories. Starting Grants are intended for early-career scientists and are endowed with up to € 1.5 million. Proof-of-Concept Grants are awarded to scientists who want to see if their ERC research projects can be turned into marketable innovations.
