ERC Starting Grants awarded to Floris Roelofsen and Ivan Titov

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a Starting Grant to six researchers from the University of Amsterdam (UvA), including our own Dr Floris Roelofsen (for the project "QuModQu Quantification and Modality in the Realm of Questions") and Dr Ivan Titov (for the project "BROADSEM: Induction of Broad-Coverage Semantic Parsers"). Our PhD student Ivano Ciardelli has made important contributions to the QuModQu research proposal and will play a prominent role in the project as a postdoctoral researcher.

A Starting Grant is a personal grant of about 1.5 million euros and provides research support to talented researchers for a period of five years.
