This project provided me with the right conditions to perform first class research in an extremely stimulating project and environment.


John Greenwood

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.


Reaching for the stars

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


Caterina Minelli

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 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.


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.


Olga Martins de Brito

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.


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.


Esmeralda Valiente

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.


Xavier Nicol

The Marie Curie grant gave me the opportunity to develop my own research project with a large degree of autonomy.


Karin Edvardsson Bjornberg

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


Radiography of the Past

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


Armando Arias Esteban

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