Europe has a vibrant and exiting science and technology culture and offers many excellent and generous career funding opportunities for researchers and innovators, no matter where they come from in the world. Horizon 2020, the European Union’s research and innovation funding program, is the world’s largest multinational R&I program. In addition to funding collaborative research projects, it offers opportunities to individual researchers. Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions and European Research Council grants are open to researchers from public and private organizations, who would like to spend time in Europe, regardless of their nationalities, careers stage, or field of research. Experts will present these opportunities and guide the audience through the options and practicalities of application.

The Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The grants enable research-focused European organisations (universities, research centers, and companies) to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide. MSCA also offers opportunities for EU researchers to go abroad (eg to the USA). Under the EU research programme “Horizon 2020”, the MSCA has a budget of over €6 billion for the period 2014-2020.

The opportunities the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions offer to researchers will be introduced. This session will guide the audience through the ways of participating including (i) by applying for an individual fellowship, or (ii) by applying directly to a vacancy in a project.
