Across Europe, researchers are working in a range of sectors, including academia, industry, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs). Improving the links between these groups of researchers is vital if Europe is to stay on the cutting edge of research. For this reason there are Marie Curie Actions specially designed to support initiatives which promote cross-sector collaborations, for example between industry and academia.

Companies benefit from hosting Marie Curie Fellows by having some of the brightest minds in their field work for them. However, cross-sectoral exchanges are not just for bigger companies. The Marie Curie schemes are designed to reduce administrative burdens for SMEs and extra funding can be made available for SME involvement in the programme.

‘As a fellow, I developed procedures and models for precise characterisation of optical interference coatings, gaining important insights into some of the world’s most advanced technologies.

As a scientist, I found it exciting and highly satisfying to contribute directly to the development of quality optical products.’

Marie Curie Fellow at Carl Zeiss,
