Funding Opportunities in Europe for Researchers from Anywhere in the World

Saturday, February 20, 2010: 1:30 PM-2:30 PM
Room 5B (San Diego Convention Center)
The workshop will explain the aim and synergies of funding schemes and provide answers to practical questions such as: What kind of support for research careers is available from Marie Curie Actions, the European Research Council (ERC), and EURAXESS-- Researchers in Motion, a one-stop shop for researchers seeking to advance their careers and personal development by moving to other countries? What are their main features? What are the selection criteria? How long is the selection process? How does the application process work? How many researchers are funded each year? What are the chances of success? Where can information be found about the EURAXESS portal? In addition, Marie Curie Fellows and ERC starting grantees will be present to share their experiences with these funding initiatives and answer questions.
