This award is not intended to be the main source of funding for the applicant’s laboratory. Applicants must therefore demonstrate multi-year independent funding that sustains the central activities of the laboratory (e.g., at least one or two grants such as Horizon 2020 or equivalently substantial multi-year awards). Individual eligibility will be determined during the review stage.
