The Marie Curie fellowship programme aims to foster the career development and further training of researchers at all career stages. These grants promote interdisciplinary research and international collaborations, supporting scientists from not only within Europe but also across the globe. Marie Curie fellowships are among Europe’s most competitive and prestigious awards, aimed at supporting the best and most promising scientists.
The Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) is a global network of researchers who have benefitted or are benefiting from a Marie Curie Action (recently renamed “Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions” under the “Excellent Science” pillar of EU’s Horizon 2020 Programme for Research).
