Marie Curie Actions

Marie Curie Actions aim to strengthen, quantitatively and qualitatively, the human potential in research and technology in Europe, by stimulating people to take up the profession of a researcher, encouraging European researchers to stay in Europe, and attracting to Europe the best researchers from the entire world. The Marie Curie Actions support training and career development for researchers taking jobs abroad (over national borders) at a prestigious organization. All domains of research are eligible. Depending on the Marie Curie Action, a project should last between two and four years.
