ERC Advanced Grants for Ursula Keller and Ruth Signorell

ERC-Keller-Signorell
Ten professors from ETH Zurich – two of them female, and eight male – have secured prestigious ERC Advanced Grants. Three of them (including Prof. Ursula Keller) are receiving the coveted funding for the second time.

From ETH’s perspective, it is not only the result of the current round of funding that is impressive, but also the high success rate: of the 18 applications submitted, 12, or two thirds, reached the second evaluation stage, and more than half were ultimately successful. To put ETH’s outstanding achievement into context: only 269 applications out of a total of 2167 received an ERC Advanced Grant. This exceptional result is close to the 2009 record, when ETH researchers won 11 Advanced Grants. This ranks ETH Zurich as the third most successful institution in this research competition after the French CRNS (15 grants) and Oxford University (14 grants).
