Paul Heidhues receives ERC grant

13.09.2012
The European Research Council (ERC) has recently bestowed a team of researchers including ESMT Professor and Lufthansa Chair in Competition and Regulation Paul Heidhues a starting grant for five years.
The team, led by Prof. Botond Köszegi of Central European University and Berkeley, will research “Behavioral Theory and Economic Applications”.

In particular, Prof. Heidhues will explore the implications for market outcomes, welfare, and policy when consumers misperceive certain aspects of products or contracts. Established by the European Commission, the ERC encourages the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and supports frontier research across all fields on the basis of scientific excellence.
In this year’s Starting Grant competition, the ERC received 4741 applications, from which only 11.3 per cent early-career top researchers have been granted funding for their research projects.

Paul Heidhues joined ESMT in September 2010 as a full professor, holder of the Lufthansa Chair in Competition and Regulation, and the director of PhD studies.

Previously, he was an associate professor of economic theory at Bonn Universität and a research fellow at the Social Science Research Center Berlin (WZB). He received his Habilitation from the Humboldt Universität zu Berlin and his PhD in economics from Rice University, Houston, Texas.

Prof. Heidhues researches in the areas of behavioral industrial organization, competition policy, behavioral economics, and (applied) game theory.

Im Focus: How wind sculpted Earth's largest dust deposit

China's Loess Plateau was formed by wind alternately depositing dust or removing dust over the last 2.6 million years, according to a new report from University of Arizona geoscientists. The study is the first to explain how the steep-fronted plateau formed.

Im Focus: An engineered surface unsticks sticky water droplets

The leaves of the lotus flower, and other natural surfaces that repel water and dirt, have been the model for many types of engineered liquid-repelling surfaces. As slippery as these surfaces are, however, tiny water droplets still stick to them. Now, Penn State researchers have developed nano/micro-textured, highly slippery surfaces able to outperform these naturally inspired coatings, particularly when the water is a vapor or tiny droplets.

Enhancing the mobility of liquid droplets on rough surfaces could improve condensation heat transfer for power-plant heat exchangers, create more efficient...

Im Focus: Increasingly severe disturbances weaken world's temperate forests

Longer, more severe, and hotter droughts and a myriad of other threats, including diseases and more extensive and severe wildfires, are threatening to transform some of the world's temperate forests, a new study published in Science has found. Without informed management, some forests could convert to shrublands or grasslands within the coming decades.

"While we have been trying to manage for resilience of 20th century conditions, we realize now that we must prepare for transformations and attempt to ease...

Im Focus: OU astrophysicist and collaborators find supermassive black holes in quasar nearest Earth

A University of Oklahoma astrophysicist and his Chinese collaborator have found two supermassive black holes in Markarian 231, the nearest quasar to Earth, using observations from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

The discovery of two supermassive black holes--one larger one and a second, smaller one--are evidence of a binary black hole and suggests that supermassive...
