Professor Kenneth Hugdahl from the Department of Biological and Medical Psychology at the University of Bergen (UiB) was the recipient of an Advanced Grant from the European Research Council (ERC) between 2010 and 2015. Now he has achieved the impressive accomplishment of receiving a second ERC Advanced Grant. This places him in the world elite and amongst the top researchers in Norway.

Previously, Nobel Prize winner Edvard Moser from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) was the only Norwegian researcher to have received two ERC Advanced Grants twice. This is the most prestigious grant awarded by the ERC. Beside Moser and Hugdahl, the economist Bård Harstad at the University of Oslo (UiO) has also received two grants – one Starting Grant and one Consolidator Grant, which he received earlier this spring.
