The Marie Curie Actions Intra - European Fellowship was on top of my priority list of fellowships due to its prestige, attractive mobility allowances as well as the networking and support benefits it proposes.
The Marie Curie fellowship helped me improve my scientific skills and reach professional maturity.
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.
Thanks to the Marie Curie Actions, working under a “standard contract” including all social insurances gives me the security I need to concentrate on my research and even allowed me to bring my family to such a fascinating place like the British capital.
During my Marie Curie grant, I learnt new techniques and methods, I got involved in interesting side projects establishing new collaborators, and importantly I increased my publication record.
I decided to apply for a Marie Curie fellowship mainly because I wanted to experience a different research environment and extend my research network.
Today, this grant has already taught me many things, not only related to science, but also to people and culture.
Novel semiconductors have great potential to power sensors that will control both small and large motorised equipment.
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.
The Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways project RADIO-PAST, studies “non-destructive” approaches to complex archaeological sites.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Applying for my own research funding was an important step for my research career. Having completed one postdoctoral position already, I needed to be able to demonstrate my potential to attract research funding. The Marie Curie fellowship was an excellent opportunity to do this and they substantially increased the likelihood of both future funding and a permanent research position down the line.
Peter Tóth aimed at "understanding the broomrapes' language" and finding out how they involuntarily communicate with their natural enemy, the Phytomyza Orobanchia flies.
