Again high ERC recognition for VIB

15 September 2011
​Early this July the results of the ERC Starting Grant 2011 selection were released. The European Research Council's fourth call for proposals resulted once again in three VIB applicants being recognized as excellent researchers: Mo Lamkanfi, VIB Department of Medical Protein Research, UGent; Jiří Friml, VIB Department of Plant Systems Biology, UGent; and Matthew Holt who will join VIB Department of Molecular and Developmental Genetics, K.U.Leuven in January 2012. Each of these ERC Starting Grants amounts to approximately €1.5 million for a five-year term (2012-2016). In the four years since the launch of the ERC program, VIB has succeeded in landing eight of these most prestigious Starting Grants – a definite confirmation of our excellence management.
