Research Teams Win Large EU Grants

September 18, 2012

Six researchers in four centers and two departments have won EU grants for teams participating in collaborative research consortia funded by the Seventh Framework Program for Research and Technological Development. Center recipients are Laszlo Barabasi (Network Science), Kate Coyer (Media and Communication Studies), Uwe Puetter (European Union Research), and Judit Sandor (Ethics in Law and Biomedicine). Department recipients are Dorothee Bohle (Political Science) and Laszlo Matyas (Economics). Teams consisting of faculty members, post docs, and doctoral students will work on projects of two to three years with teams from six to 12 other European universities. Altogether, these projects will bring €1.1 million in new research funding to CEU. Including these six, CEU is now involved in 25 EU-funded collaborative research projects.
