A pioneering researcher working in mathematical theory at the University of Warwick has received over €1.4 million in funding from the European Research Council.
Most European citizens do not particularly care about climate change. That’s the striking finding from new research led by Warwick Economics on the views of 70,000 randomly sampled European men and women. Only 5% described themselves as “extremely worried” about climate change, while the climate and the environment ranked only fifth in people’s overall views about priorities.
€2 million has been awarded by the European Commission to the EUTOPIA community of universities — of which the UK’s University of Warwick is a founding member — with the purpose of opening up academic research to businesses, policy-makers, and the wider public.
Black heritage, British political satire, ovarian cancer, and two-dimensional ‘wonder’ materials — all of these are subjects that will be researched by the second cohort of pan-European co-tutelle PhD scholars at the University of Warwick.
EUTOPIA, a next-generation teaching and research community of six European universities, which was successful in its selection to be part of the Erasmus+ ‘European Universities’ Programme this year, officially begins its project today, 1st December 2019.
