Zapraszamy naukowców i badaczy UŁ do zapoznania się z poniższymi informacjami nt. możliwości ubiegania się o stypendium Marie Sklodowska-Curie – Individual Fellowships.
On March 12th, 2014, the new Call Marie Sklodowska-Curie – Individual Fellowships was launched in the frame of Horizon 2020, the European Programme for Research and Innovation.
The objective of Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions is to support the career development and training of researchers with a bottom up approach in all scientific disciplines through worldwide and cross-sector mobility and will award 6,162 million euros over the period 2014-2020.
With the same objectives of promoting excellence and support the training and the career development of researchers, Ca’ Foscari University of Venice encourages researchers from abroad to apply for a grant and to choose Ca’ Foscari University as Host Institution.
To this end, Ca’ Foscari’s International Research Office is willing to provide researches with all the support needed to draft their proposals. In case of approval of the MSCA project, the researcher will be hired with a full time contract of the same duration of the project (up to 36 months). The average salary of a MSCA fellow in Italy is around 4000 euros per month (after taxes).
Your collaboration in this matter is essential, therefore we kindly ask you to forward this message to every potentially interested researcher, together with the Expression of Interest form you may find here.
At the international research office we are at your disposal for any further information and assistance.
