ERC Starting grant for Daniel Dadush26-9-2018
Daniel Dadush (CWI) has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant of 1.5 ME for his proposal ‘Towards a Quantitative Theory of Integer Programming’. With this grant, Dadush aims to revolutionize the understanding of integer programming (IP), the most popular method used today for finding optimal solutions to real-world optimization problems.
VICI grant for Nikhil Bansal26-9-2018
Nikhil Bansal has been awarded a Vici grant of 1.5 ME. He is one of the 35 academics to receive this grant from NWO in 2018. Bansal aims to use his grant to develop new algorithmic methods to make discrete decisions in a continuous way. He expects this to lead to applications in the fields of logistics, bio-informatics, chip design and machine learning.
