Congratulations to SapienCE PI Andrea Bender and Professor II Francesco d’Errico on securing an ERC Synergy grant for the project QUANTA (Evolution of Cognitive Tools for Quantification). Collaborators in the project include Professor Russel Gray of the Max Planck Institute, Germany, and Professor Rafael Núñez of the University of California San Diego.
The main topic for the project is counting. The University of Bergen interviewed Andrea Bender on the project and published an article (Norwegian only).
The SapienCE team is very proud of the achievement and excited to see how the project develops. Watch this space for future updates about QUANTA!
