EU funding for research and education – inspiring science today and in the future

On 15 April Androulla Vassiliou, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth, visited the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), meeting CERN scientists and a Swiss delegation.

At the event she met some Marie Curie Fellows who presented an overview of their research. During her speech she highlighted the good working collaboration between CERN and the Marie Curie Actions, the varied profiles of the Marie Curie Researchers, and their exciting career prospects following a Marie Curie grant. She emphasised the importance of outreach in promoting and explaining science to the general public, in order to share passion for science with younger generations, notably young girls.
