Novel semiconductors have great potential to power sensors that will control both small and large motorised equipment.
As my objective was mainly to collaborate with Europes most outstanding experts, the prestigious Marie Curie grant was a precious opportunity for me.
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.
I decided to apply for a Marie Curie fellowship mainly because I wanted to experience a different research environment and extend my research network.
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.
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 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.
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.
SoMoPro is a COFUND Marie Curie project, a regional grant programme backed by European funding set up to attract skilled researchers to the South Moravian Region.
I am living a dream that comes true again every single day.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The prestigious Marie Curie grant allows me to learn new techniques and will add valuable publications to my CV. I am confident that my improved professional profile will open new opportunities in the competitive scientific job market.
The Intra European Fellowship HIGHZLENS project aimed at studying the formation and evolution of 'high redshift galaxies through gravitational telescopes'.
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.
Thanks to the wide range of resources available – both from the Marie Curie fellowship and the institution – and the breadth of interests represented by my supervisors, I knew I would be guided into a successful career as independent investigator.
The Marie Curie fellowship helped me improve my scientific skills and reach professional maturity.
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.
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.
The Marie Curie grant gave me the opportunity to develop my own research project with a large degree of autonomy.
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.
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.
