Michael Awarded €1.4 Million ERC Starting Research Grant

John Michael, research fellow at CEU’s Social Mind Center, has been awarded €1.4 million ERC Starting Independent Research Grant by the European Research Council: Seventh Framework Ideas Programme (FP7)  for his project, entitled "An Integrative Framework for Modeling the Sense of Commitment".

The project, expected to start in July 2016, will develop a theoretical framework for research on commitment, and create a suite of experimental paradigms for testing predictions generated by the theoretical framework. By focusing on joint actions involving pairs of agents, it will illuminate the fundamental mechanisms underlying large-scale human social phenomena.
