Evaluation results - ERC Consolidator Grant 2022 call

Published on | 1 year ago

Programmes ERC  

The results of the 2022 European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant call (call deadline 17 March 2022) were published. Consolidator Grants are open to researchers with 7-12 years of experience since completion of PhD (extensions are possible under certain documented circumstances), a scientific track record showing great promise and an excellent research proposal.

Of the 2222 submitted proposals 321 researchers with 37 different nationalities received an ERC Starting grant. 91 In Life Sciences, 133 in Physical Sciences and Engineering and 97 in Social Sciences and Humanities.

However the statistics and final list are provisional since the UK is still considered non-associated to Horizon Europe. The successful proposals of applicants based in a country in the process of associating to Horizon Europe will be eligible for funding only if the relevant Horizon Europe association agreement applies by the time of the signature of the grant agreement.

Among the 321 selected researchers are eleven based at Flemish host institutions:

  • Cosmin Cercel, Universiteit Gent, “EMERGE - Rethinking emergency from a legal historical perspective: contexts, actors, practices, 1914-2020”, evaluation panel Social Sciences and Humanities 2
  • Thomas Cocolios, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, “NSHAPE - Nuclear Shapes of Heavy Atoms and Proton-Emitting nuclei”, evaluation panel Physical Sciences and Engineering 2
  • An Ghysels, Universiteit Gent, “PASTIME - Memory dependent PAth Sampling methods for understanding long TIMEscale molecular processes”, evaluation panel Physical Sciences and Engineering 4
  • Wim Hardyns, Universiteit Gent, “BIGDATPOL - Towards an evidence-based model for big data policing: Evaluating the statistical-methodological, criminological and legal and ethical conditions”, evaluation panel Social Sciences and Humanities 2
  • Michal Heller, Universiteit Gent, “High-TheQ - Thermalization at High Energies”, evaluation panel Physical Sciences and Engineering 2
  • Francis Impens, Vlaams Instituut voor Biotechnologie, “MULTIMOYA - Multi-omics characterization of immune triggers in Moyamoya disease”, evaluation panel Life Sciences 6
  • Diego Miralles, Universiteit Gent, “HEAT - Hybrid dry–hot Extremes prediction and AdapTation”, evaluation panel Physical Sciences and Engineering 10
  • Kiavash Movahedi, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, “ReplaceMi - Microglia engineering and replacement to treat brain disease”, evaluation panel Life Sciences 5
  • Kris Myny, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, “Orison - igzO-based smaRt Interposer technologieS fOr iNtegrated circuits and pixels”, evaluation panel Physical Sciences and Engineering 7
  • Bram Van de Poel, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, “ETHYLUTION - Revealing the ancient plant ethylene biosynthesis and ACC signaling pathway”, evaluation panel Life Sciences 8
  • Marian Verhelst, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, “BINGO - Outplaying the hardware lottery for embedded AI”, evaluation panel Physical Sciences and Engineering 7

ROOT - Rolling Out OSNMA for the secure synchronization of Telecom networks

The ROOT project obtained funding under Horizon 2020 topic ‘EGNSS applications fostering societal resilience and protecting the environment’. The project, which ran from November 2020 to July 2022,  aimed to demonstrate the benefit of Galileo OSNMA signal to increase the robustness of critical telecom infrastructures.

The Flanders-based company Septentrio contributed substantially to completing this objective together with the other ROOT partners. The results of the project partially close a gap in the security of telecommunication networks dependent on satellite-derived time, with indirect benefits in curbing illegal attempts to disrupt network services.
