The European Research Council (ERC) has announced the first results for the Advanced Grant competition. Nine of the 105 winners are employed at a Dutch institution. Four of the winners are former Spinoza Prize winners and three of the winners work at an NWO Institute.
All 105 winners [http://erc.europa.eu/pdf/AdG1_ListPE_2008-07-31final.pdf] are from the area of Physical Sciences and Engineering. In the near future, more winners will follow from the areas Social Sciences and Humanities, Life Sciences and Medicine, and Interdisciplinary Applications, respectively.
The ERC Advanced Grants are European grants for groundbreaking research. A total of 997 researchers submitted an application in the area of Physical Sciences and Engineering. Of these, 105 eventually won a grant. Most of the winners reside in the United Kingdom (19) and France (13). With 9 awards, the Netherlands shares third place with Italy and Switzerland.
