Outstanding success for Oxford economists in the 2020 ERC Starting Grants competition

Wednesday, 02 September 2020

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.
