The European Research Council has awarded Advanced Grants to six CEPR Research Fellows. Philippe Aghion, Botond Köszegi, Albert Marcet, Gianmarco Ottaviano, Carol Propper, and Xavier Vives were six of the 259 researchers awarded grants this year, “giving them a chance to realise their most creative ideas and potentially produce results that will have a major impact on science, society and the economy”.

The grants included:

The grants are part of the EU's Research and Innovation programme, Horizon 2020. The European Research Council, set up by the European Union in 2007, is the first European funding organisation for excellent frontier research. Every year, it selects and funds the very best, creative researchers of any nationality and age, to run projects based in Europe.
