Marie Curie Fellowships are available for any discipline across all Schools at The University of Nottingham.
The 'Marie Curie Actions' have long been one of the most popular and appreciated features of the Community Framework Programmes for Research and Technological Development. They have developed significantly in orientation over time, from a pure mobility fellowships programme to a programme dedicated to stimulating researchers' career development. The 'Marie Curie Actions' have been particularly successful in responding to the needs of Europe's scientific community in terms of training, mobility and career development.
Marie Curie Actions - Research Funding Information Event, 31st May 2012, 2-3pm, A21 Council Room, Trent Building
The final call for Marie Curie Actions funding under FP7 will be published in July 2012.
This information event will cover the upcoming calls which will fund:
Fellowships for individual researchers
Funding for PhD students through research networks
Funding for academic-industrial collaborations
Funding for staff exchanges between academic institutions
The Marie Curie Actions are the simplest type of EU funding - the projects are 100% funded and the budgets are flat rate and set by the EU.
The salaries of Marie Curie fellows are very competitive and range from £35,000 per annum for PhD students to over £90,000 per annum for experienced researchers.
The 2013 programme has a budget of almost €1billion across the different actions, all of which are open to any area of research.
The University of Nottingham has consistently achieved a success rate of over 30% for Marie Curie fellowships and is one of the top 10 institutions in Europe for funding from the Marie Curie Actions. Support is available from Research Graduate Services at each stage of the application and once the project is funded.
This information event is open to academic staff from all areas of the university interested in applying for funding from the Marie Curie Action.
