Edel Hennessy - In your experience what are the benefits of participating in EU research projects?
First of all they fund science, that's great! I've heard they fund science. That is brilliant in my opinion. My boyfriend is a recipient of a Marie Curie fellowship and it is just amazing the conferences he gets to go to, the interaction with people, he works alongside Peter Higgs and he was there, saw all the interactions with CERN. They organised their own conference recently and had just amazing people come and speak to them purely because they have that money from the Marie Curie programme and they can do all these things that if you don't have money you can't do... So it is pretty cool thing to have.
