Various Ramón y Cajal fellows obtain prestigious European funds


Of course one has to be *very* cautious to equate excellent science to obtaining European funding. Nonetheless we are very pleased to see that among the Spanish ERC laureates there is an overwhelming number of RyC fellows.

Of the 20 ERC Starting Grants that went to Spanish researchers in the previous call, 15 grants went to RyC fellows! That is 75 {987377834475827bd293c9570e6e34e1fd3bfe2c9e167eb93fc77b9654f442d6} of the ERC Starting Grants have been assigned to RyC fellows. In the respective web pages (Life Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities, Physical Sciences and Engineering) one can see how the grants are distributed among the participating countries. For example, the Netherlands obtained a total of 34 ERC starting grants.

We have included various examples of RyC fellows who obtained an ERC Starting Grant this call in another section of our website.
