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.
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.
Novel semiconductors have great potential to power sensors that will control both small and large motorised equipment.
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.
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.
I decided to apply for a Marie Curie fellowship mainly because I wanted to experience a different research environment and extend my research network.
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.
The Marie Curie fellowship is an important opportunity to develop my research on visual studies and on semiotic-social meanings of images: modernity and advertising poster in Paris at the beginning of 20th century.
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.
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.
This project provided me with the right conditions to perform first class research in an extremely stimulating project and environment.
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.
I decided to apply for a Marie Curie fellowship because they are very prestigious and I knew they would give me the possibility to carry on my own research project independently.
The Marie Curie fellowship helped me improve my scientific skills and reach professional maturity.
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 Actions grant played a crucial part in achieving my long term goals of a career in academic public health and contribution to the growing field of chronic disease management.
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 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 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
The Marie Curie Actions Intra-European Fellowship gave me the opportunity to gain a truly interdisciplinary, pure research experience in theoretical nanoscience.
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.
