Faculty of Mathematics and Science

ERC funding to four Faculty researchers

The European Research Council (ERC) awarded Consolidator Grants to four pioneering research projects in the Faculty of Mathematics and Science at the University of Jyväskylä. The funding was granted to Academy Research Fellows Anu Kankainen and Anna Kuparinen, and Professors Heikki Tuononen and Mikko Salo. Receiving four ERC grants for the same Faculty is unique and tells about an especially high standard of research. In selecting the projects to be funded, the ERC uses the criterion of excellence, which includes scientific quality as well as the novelty and boldness of the research idea. The projects of Kankainen, Kuparinen, Tuononen and Salo are carried out, respectively, at the Departments of Physics, Biological and Environmental Science, Chemistry and Mathematics and Statistics.
