Grants, Awards and honors are important parameters for measuring scientific excellence. At IMBA scientists are empowered to perform at their best and have demonstrated extraordinary achievements in research.
The European Research Council (ERC) was founded by the EU in 2007 to fund outstanding science. 10 years later, ERC grants stand out as the most prestigious award for high quality research in Europe. The sole selection criterion for an ERC grant is scientific excellence. The process is so competitive that only 11% of applications are funded, however, at IMBA and the Vienna BioCenter the success rate is higher than 60%.
At IMBA several groups are funded by an ERC grant.
Election to EMBO Membership is recognition of research excellence and the outstanding achievements made by a life scientist. 85 EMBO Members and Associate Members have been awarded Nobel Prizes. The annual nominations and elections ensure that the membership remains at the forefront of life science research. The EMBO Membership currently comprises more than 1700 life scientists.
At IMBA, several Group leaders are elected EMBO members or were appointed EMBO Young Investigators.
