The principal investigators in the School of Natural Sciences have conceived, led and/or supervised over 300 competitively won research projects since 2000. This has resulted in more than 200 PhD theses and 62 post-doctoral positions during that time.
Funding and support for our research has come via competitive international awards from the European Commission (especially the Framework Programme, Horizon 2020, and Marie Skłodowska Curie), The European Research Council, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, the Belmont Forum, INTERREG, LIFE+, COST, NASA, and the Wellcome Trust.
