I decided to apply for a Marie Curie fellowship mainly because I wanted to experience a different research environment and extend my research network.
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.
Today, this grant has already taught me many things, not only related to science, but also to people and culture.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Peter Tóth aimed at "understanding the broomrapes' language" and finding out how they involuntarily communicate with their natural enemy, the Phytomyza Orobanchia flies.
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 Actions fellowship provided me with a unique opportunity to develop my skills as a molecular microbiologist, especially due to the application of modern genetic approaches.
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 grant gave me the opportunity to develop my own research project with a large degree of autonomy.
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.
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.
An international EU-funded partnership is leading the way in food quality and safety.
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.
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.
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 huge prestige of Marie Curie Actions across Europe and excellent economic conditions motivated my application.
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.
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.
