European Research Council starting grant awarded

Feng Hao has received a European Research Council starting grant.  The grant of 1.5 million euro provides Feng with 3 RAs for 5 years, to conduct research into a self-enforcing e-voting system. A truly exceptional achievement; the first ERC grant in the School.

This project aims to develop a new generation of e-voting called the 'self-enforcing e-voting system'. The new system does not depend on any trusted authorities, which is different from all currently existing or
proposed e-voting schemes.
