Felix TROPF (research professor CREST-ENSAE), awarded with ERC Starting Grants
Awarded by the European Research Council (ERC), Starting Grants aim to support researchers at the beginning of their careers who have already done excellent work and who are ready to work independently as leaders of research teams. This year, laboratories of Institut Polytechnique de Paris have 3 researchers on the list of ERC Starting Grant winners.
