MARVEL Professor Michele Ceriotti, of EPFL's Laboratory of Computational Science and Modeling (COSMO), was awarded the prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant.

Michele Ceriotti, who is the project leader of Design & Discovery Project 1 and also a group leader in Design & Discovery Project 2, received a grant for his project entitled "Fully Integrating Atomistic Modeling with Machine Learning". This grant of two million euros, spread over five years, encourages investigator-driven frontier research in Europe through competitive funding across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence.

The activity of the ERC is to provide attractive, long-term funding to support excellent investigators and their research teams to pursue ground- breaking, high-gain/high-risk research. 

The ERC Consolidator Grants are awarded to researchers of any nationality and age, with at least seven years of experience after PhD, and a scientific track record showing great promise. The funding mostly covers the employment of researchers and other staff to consolidate the grantees' teams.
