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.
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.
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.
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.
I applied for a MCA long-term fellowship to complement an EMBO fellowship, which allowed me publish in a high impact journal.
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.
Novel semiconductors have great potential to power sensors that will control both small and large motorised equipment.
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.
An international EU-funded partnership is leading the way in food quality and safety.
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.
I realized that a Marie Curie grant would provide my projects with substantial momentum given the large flexibility the funding allows in using the money.
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.
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 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.
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.
Today, this grant has already taught me many things, not only related to science, but also to people and culture.
When I read that my Marie Curie project was accepted, I felt like opening the window of my room and enjoying that fantastic spring day
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 helped me improve my scientific skills and reach professional maturity.
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 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.
Milo Malanga is helping to pioneer a new treatment that could lead to a breakthrough in the fight against brain cancer.
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.
