During my Marie Curie fellowship I learnt how new technologies can impact upon our everyday life through innovation, for example in the treatment and cure of cancer.
The Marie Curie Actions fellowship does not only help me to define myself as a distinguished specialist, it will also enable me to establish my own research group in the near future and develop excellent cooperation with world leading research institutions.
I applied for a Marie Curie fellowship a few months after I defended my thesis. I was working on fundamental aspects of the physics of materials, investigating how materials break, from the atomic to the macroscopic scale. This study inspired me many ideas on how to design stronger materials.
The Marie Curie Actions Intra-European Fellowship gave me the opportunity to gain a truly interdisciplinary, pure research experience in theoretical nanoscience.
Studying physics and work on science is my biggest childhood dream. The Marie Curie Actions represent one of the best opportunities I had to make it come true.
The Marie Curie International Reintegration Grant represents a prestigious type of funding and it undoubtedly helped in further supporting the evolution of my career from post-doctoral scientist to independent principal investigator and research team leader.
Thanks to the wide range of resources available – both from the Marie Curie fellowship and the institution – and the breadth of interests represented by my supervisors, I knew I would be guided into a successful career as independent investigator.
The Marie Curie grant gave me the opportunity to develop my own research project with a large degree of autonomy.
My Marie Curie fellowship has so far allowed me to choose a research topic to which I had had no previous exposure, but which I was fully scientifically ready to tackle, and to start making my own way towards producing original results.
After a two-year post-doctoral training period in Mexico, the Marie Curie fellowship represented the best option to reintegrate in the European research environment within optimal working conditions.
Getting robots to think and see like humans has been a daunting task for scientists and developers. Now, new technology is helping to achieve this with numerous applications for industry and services.
The Marie Curie Actions fellowship gave me the scientific and financial independence to achieve this project and provided me with enough resources and flexibility to convince me that the move could work not only for my career, but also for my family.
My time as a Marie Curie fellow has been a highlight of my post-doctoral experience. The fellowship has lived up to its reputation and my greatest expectations.
When I applied to a Marie Curie programme, I did not have the faintest idea of the fantastic experience I would have for the next three years!
The Marie Curie Actions grant helped me enter more deeply into the philosophical research areas that I have specialized in and gave me the opportunity to form new research collaboration
Novel semiconductors have great potential to power sensors that will control both small and large motorised equipment.
I applied for a MCA long-term fellowship to complement an EMBO fellowship, which allowed me publish in a high impact journal.
The Marie Curie fellowship gave me a real chance to learn new scientific techniques, in my case, running fluid dynamic experiments. The benefits of the grant are simply that I am now working in a new country with new people and new challenges.
The Marie Curie fellowship helped me acquire a position of professional maturity in my research area. So I see it as a fundamental step in the progression of my academic career.
New antenna technology will make mobile wireless communication better and faster, opening up more location-based applications. Advertising, emergency services and many more areas stand to benefit.
As my objective was mainly to collaborate with Europes most outstanding experts, the prestigious Marie Curie grant was a precious opportunity for me.
Now it is my turn to attract in my new group a highly qualified researcher, also eligible for a Marie Curie fellowship. I'm looking forward to taking my next step as a group leader and I really want to thank Marie Curie Actions for this.
When I started to prepare my Marie Curie fellowship application, I felt it could represent a unique opportunity, not only for the development of my scientific career but also for my life in general.
The Marie Curie fellowship helped me improve my scientific skills and reach professional maturity.
An international EU-funded partnership is leading the way in food quality and safety.
