Prof. Daniel Cremers, Computer Vision Group at the Chair of Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence, has previously received a Starting Grant, a Consolidator Grant and two Proof of Concept Grants. Recently the European Research Council (ERC) has announced support for his project SIMULACRON in the form of a richly endowed Advanced Grant. In the SIMULACRON project, Prof. Cremers will use video data to create physical models.
The ERC awards the prestigious grants annually in a number of categories. Advanced Grants, which are set aside for established, leading scientists with a track record of significant research achievements over the past 10 years, come with up to 2.5 million euros in funding.
