Winners CIAS small grants

Our call for proposals for CIAS small grants has yielded an impressive amount of excellent research proposals. We would have loved to support all of these initiatives, but unfortunately limited amounts of funds forced us to pick 5 of the proposals. It was extremely hard to decide, but in the end, based on various parameters, we have chosen to fund the following projects, in alphabetical order of contact person:
