IDEA Centre's academic receives multi-million award.

Dr Vincent C. Müller has been awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Professorship. This includes a personal research grant of €3.5M, plus matching funds from the university (ca. €1.5M), and a permanent chair in Philosophy of Artificial Intelligence at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU).

Nominations for this professorship can be made by any German university that wants to attract a leading researcher to take up a post at that university, moving from a post outside Germany.

In 2021, 16 awards were given by the A.v. Humboldt Foundation, in all disciplines. The award will be presented to all awardees who accept the position by the Federal Minister of Education and Research at a ceremony in Berlin.
