"Scientix will allow every science teacher and student to benefit from excellent teaching materials developed by European and national research projects. So Scientix will contribute both to inspiring young people with science and to maximising value for every euro Europe spends on science education. It will also be a place for everybody interested in science education to exchange news and views."
Brussels, 26 September 2014
"This republican homage from France is due to the recognition of her major role in the set-up of Horizon 2020, a 80 billion euro programme in support of science, research and innovation. This programme will be a central driver for the economic recovery process in Europe as it will create both high-skilled jobs and new goods and services."
"During the Seventh EU Framework Programme, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie scheme funded some 270 Canadian researchers to work in Europe and more than 150 Europeans to work in Canada. We hope that this excellent level of researcher mobility will increase in the coming years. These pan-European programmes are only the tip of the iceberg of opportunities."
