The Department of Economics is proud to announce that two of our faculty - Abi Adams-Prassl and Alex Teytelboym - have been awarded prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Starting Grants to fund cutting-edge research projects into the future of work, trade and economic theory. Teodora Boneva – who was Associate Professor of Economics at Oxford until April 2020 when she moved to a post at the University of Zurich – has also received an ERC Starting grant. Our warmest congratulations to Abi, Alex and Teodora.
ERC Starting Grants are intended to support exceptional early career researchers to become research leaders in their fields. The highly-coveted awards, funded through the European Union, are each worth more than 1 million euros and will provide the researchers with the resources to conduct pioneering research, and expand learning into exciting new areas.
