Marie Curie Actions – promoting
Are you an ambitious researcher looking to expand your
horizons and work with the best in your field, wherever in the
world they might be? Or do you want to move to a different
sector and acquire new skills and learn new ways of working?
Or maybe you’re from outside the EU and want to come to
Europe to pursue your career here?
Whatever your dream, if you’re passionate about research
and bursting with creative ideas for new projects in the
natural sciences, social sciences, economics or humanities,
then the EU’s Marie Curie Actions are for you!
Since 1996, the Marie Curie Actions have helped thousands
of researchers of all ages, nationalities and disciplines develop
their careers and realise their research dreams – no other
scheme in the world offers such a wide variety of opportunities
to such a broad range of researchers. By doing this, the Marie
Curie Actions also promote the transfer of knowledge and
skills across national and sectoral borders, and crucially,
advance excellence in research and innovation across Europe.
A competitive salary,
One of the main attractions of the Marie Curie scheme is the
competitive salary, which puts a research career on a level
playing field with other occupations. However, a Marie Curie
grant also covers much more. It takes care of your employer’s
costs such as social security payments, for example. It will
even help out with costs incurred while developing your
career, such as attending language or management courses
or even buying a new suit for that important job interview!
