Marie Curie

Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions (MSCA) are European research grants available to researchers regardless of their nationality nor field of research. In addition to generous research funding, scientists have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers. They come under the “Excellent Science” pillar of Horizon 2020 and award 6 162 million EUR over the period 2014-2020. Before January 2014, the Marie Curie fellowships was named Marie Curie fellowships (MC).

The objective of MSCA is to support the career development and training of researchers – with a focus on innovation skills – in all scientific disciplines through worldwide and cross-sector mobility. For this, the MSCA provide grants at all stages of researchers’ careers, from PhD candidates to highly experienced researchers, and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility.

Under FP7 ICMAT has been the host of 4 Marie Curie projects, two IRSES networks (GEOMECH and MODULI) and two individual fellowships (MODPRINBUN and TRANSIC).
Under H2020, ICMAT is hosting five MSCA Individual Fellowship: STROMINGER and ISOPARAMETRIC.
