From 2011 to 2015 the Louis-Jeantet Foundation supported the European Research Council (ERC) “Starting Grants” programme aimed at encouraging pioneering research in Europe.
First awarded in 2011, the Louis-Jeantet Young Investigator Career Award (YICA) was intended to encourage and support the best young talents in biomedical research in Europe.
The Louis-Jeantet YICA consisted of a research grant of CHF 100,000 plus CHF 10,000 for the winner’s personal use and thus helped the winners to further develop their research careers.
