My Marie Curie Actions Reintegration Grant covers my research costs and it allows me to develop personal projects while integrating in a research team already in place.


Sarah Leonard

I decided to apply for a Marie Curie fellowship mainly because I wanted to experience a different research environment and extend my research network.


Federico Davila

Today, this grant has already taught me many things, not only related to science, but also to people and culture.


Markus Butz

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.


Claudia Almeida Gomes

I applied for a MCA long-term fellowship to complement an EMBO fellowship, which allowed me publish in a high impact journal.


The ultimate robot comes to life

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 fellowship is very attractive because it is based on merit and genuinely promotes excellence, which grants researchers with a prominent status at the European and international level.


Getting rid of weeds: flies or pesticides?

Peter Tóth aimed at "understanding the broomrapes' language" and finding out how they involuntarily communicate with their natural enemy, the Phytomyza Orobanchia flies.


Laurent Ponson

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.


Lionel Poulin

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.


Aksam Merched

My Marie Curie fellowship helped me acquire technical skills for my projects and obtain the required accreditation for professorship in France. It is a rewarding process which has strengthened my career with a strong international networking, exposure and skills development.

Phenomenal growth of digital wireless and mobile communications systems has opened up a myriad of new applications and possibilities. Wireless...


Claire Chaussade

I had a short break in my career to give birth to my son and this prestigious fellowship greatly facilitated resuming my research career and achieving an appropriate work/life balance.


Radiography of the Past

The Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways project RADIO-PAST, studies “non-destructive” approaches to complex archaeological sites.


Sophisticated sensors to improve motor performance

Novel semiconductors have great potential to power sensors that will control both small and large motorised equipment.


Pilar Bustos

The Marie Curie fellowship helped me improve my scientific skills and reach professional maturity.


Keira Melican

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.


Armando Arias Esteban

The huge prestige of Marie Curie Actions across Europe and excellent economic conditions motivated my application.


John Armitage

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.


Reaching for the stars

The Intra European Fellowship HIGHZLENS project aimed at studying the formation and evolution of 'high redshift galaxies through gravitational telescopes'.


More sugar, less cancer

Milo Malanga is helping to pioneer a new treatment that could lead to a breakthrough in the fight against brain cancer.


Felix Rico

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.


Let the children roam free

German scientist, Michaela Schedel, believes that her findings could change our understanding of childhood asthma and lead to new treatments for the potentially fatal condition.
