Androulla Vassiliou, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, will visit the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, on 15 April to meet scientists and researchers supported with funding from the EU Marie Curie Actions.
As Commissioner Vassiliou said: "CERN and the Marie Curie Actions are ideal partners because they share the same philosophy – a commitment to scientific excellence which benefits society. That is why the Commission has urged Member States and the European Parliament to ensure the Marie Curie Actions are funded properly in the future EU budget. I am proud that the Marie Curie Actions contributed to the work in discovering the Higgs Boson and in research projects like ENTERVISION, which will improve cancer treatment and help to train a new generation of researchers in this vitally-important field."
