Augustin Landier has been awarded a 9th ERC grant in favour of TSE for his project "Systemic Risk and Financial Vulnerabilities: Diagnosis and Solutions"



ERC « Starting Grants » (junior researchers) aid the research leaders who are about to set up or consolidate an adequate research team and are starting to carry out independent research work in Europe. This ERC allowance goes to promising young researchers with strong potential to emerge as independent research leaders. It supports the creation of new research teams of excellence and strengthens those that have been recently set up. The extremely selective criteria testify to the high-ranking quality of this achievement: only 11% of the  5000 "Starting Grant" applications  submitted in 2012 were selected, among which 1.5% in France.
