The physicists Francesca Ferlaino and Hans Briegel as well as the biochemist Kathrin Thedieck of the University of Innsbruck in Tyrol each received an ERC Advanced Grant, the highest amount of European funding for scientists working in the field of basic research. On balance, about € 7 million in funds will be distributed to promote research at the University of Innsbruck. These scientists will conduct research into new systems for quantum matter simulation, the control of mTOR-dependent metabolic processes and models for AI-driven quantum experiments. This ERC grant represents the third grant for Francesca Ferlaino, following her being awarded the Starting Grant in 2010 and a Consolidator Grant in 2016.

With the ERC Advanced Grant, the European Research Council (ERC) honours established and leading-edge scientists for their outstanding scientific research. Each of them is given up to € 2.5 million over a period of five years as funding for their basic research work.
