Research and Innovation Research and Innovation Marie Curie Actions Your research career in Europe
Marie Curie Actions As a researcher I want to… … undertake a project in Europe … spend my time at the leading labs in Europe …be part of a well-established and prestigious programme … benefit from good working conditions Marie Curie Actions
Maybe I want to… …work with businesses …be part of a short-term exchange …bring a researcher from Europe at no cost to my employer Marie Curie Actions Almost 1 billion/2013 ($1.27 billion)
Marie Curie Actions … are a significant EU fellowships programme since the early 1990s … support the mobility, training and career development of researchers of all nationalities … fund all domains of research (bottom-up approach) and the financing rate is 100%
Marie Curie Actions # of US host organisations (International Outgoing Fellowships): 465 # of US participations in International Research Staff Exchange Schemes: 125 599 326
Marie Curie Actions Depends on experience and type of mobility Which actions are suited for me?
Marie Curie Actions Support for two categories of researchers: Early Stage Researcher: Less than 4 years of research experience and without a doctoral degree ("pre-doc") Experienced Researcher: In possession of a doctoral degree or at least 4 years of research experience ("post-doc)
Marie Curie Actions Support for three types of mobility: Incoming: moving from outside Europe into Europe IntraEuropean: moving within Europe Outgoing: moving from Europe to a country outside of Europe – NB compulsory return phase of one year (fully funded)
Marie Curie Actions 2 ways to be supported: Apply for your own fellowship or Apply to a project
Marie Curie Actions 1. Apply for your own fellowship Post Doc level
Marie Curie Actions Post-doctoral fellowships for outstanding researchers For experienced researchers In possession of a doctoral degree, or have 4 years of full-time research experience at the time of the call deadline Fellowships of 12 to 24 or 36 months Three types depending on the mobility of the researcher IEF - Intra-European Fellowships IOF - International Outgoing Fellowships IIF - International Incoming Fellowships
IIF Researchers: International mobility to Member States (MS) and Associated Countries (AC) from a third country Experienced researchers of any nationality In possession of a doctoral degree, or have 4 years of full-time research experience at the time of the call deadline Normally researchers with a more senior profile Possible Return Phase for researchers from International Cooperation Partnership Countries
Marie Curie Actions IIF Mobility: Applicants must comply with the rules for mobility: They must demonstrate mobility from a third country They must not have resided or carried out their main activity in the country of the host organisation for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the call deadline
Marie Curie Actions Category 1:Monthly Living Allowance - 58,500 gross salary per ER / year x country coefficient (4-10 years) - 87,500 gross salary per ER / year x country coefficient (>10 years) Category 2: Mobility Allowance - 1,000 – 700 (family or not) per researcher month x country coefficient Category 3: Contribution to Research, training and Transfer of Knowledge - 800 per researcher month - Flat-rate cost category Category 5: Overheads (and management) - 700 per researcher month x country coefficient - Flat-rate cost category
Marie Curie Actions Career Integration Grants (CIG) …2013 is your last chance to apply
Marie Curie Actions Objectives: Encouraging researchers to establish themselves in a Member State or in an Associated country, for example after a period of mobility The action is designed to provide researchers who have been offered a stable position and who are considering establishing themselves in Europe with their own research budget, thus contributing to the scientific success of their research career Profile of the researchers: Experienced Researchers of any nationality; must comply with the rule for mobility Profile of the host organisations: Universities, research centres, enterprises including SMEs etc. located in a Member State or Associated Country
Marie Curie Actions Financial support for a period of 24 up to 48 months (full time equivalent) for a professional career integration project presented by an ER in liaison with a host organisation in a Member State or Associated country The contribution is a flat rate of 25 000 EUR per researcher and per year to contribute to the research costs of the researcher at the host organisation CIG Financial regime
Marie Curie Actions Cofunding of Regional, National and International Programmes (COFUND)
Marie Curie Actions Objectives: To encourage existing or new regional or national fellowship programmes to open up to and provide for trans-national mobility, as well as to reinforce international programmes These programmes must run an open, merit-based competition for the applying researchers, and be founded on international peer-review Profile of the researchers supported: Researchers supported under the programmes co-funded in the frame of this action must comply with the definition of experienced researchers and of trans-national mobility
Marie Curie Actions How does COFUND work? Funding bodies or organisations apply to the EU for funding Fellows apply directly to the calls issued by the COFUNDed organisation All calls published on Marie Curie Actions website
Marie Curie Actions 2. Apply to a project All levels
Marie Curie Actions Industry Academia Partnerships and Pathways In Industry-Academia Partnerships Pathways, academic and commercial partners propose a joint research project. Recruitment of experienced researchers brings new knowledge into the consortium. Recruited researchers enjoy the same income as IxF fellows Fellowships of 12-24 months
Marie Curie Actions Objectives: Attract and train young people to become researchers Equip researchers with a broad set of skills that will match both public and private sector needs Improve career prospects of doctoral candidates Improve quality of doctoral training Promote collaboration of academia and private sector in doctoral training Initial Training Networks
Marie Curie Actions Research training for PhD & first PostDoc transnational network multi/interdisciplinary and emerging fields training primarily through research on individual, personalised research projects complemented by substantial training modules in key transferable skills Involvement of commercial entities Features

Marie Curie Actions Andrew Musser "Marie Curie Actions is an excellent programme. It is impressive and humbling to be in such an international network with leading scientists whose work I read during my studies." An American scientist from Texas Doing a PhD at Cambridge University (UK) Studying physical processes and materials with the potential to improve solar cell performance leading to considerable energy efficiency gains.

Marie Curie Actions Originally from Minnesota Working for the Italian National Research Council in Venice Researches biomass burning recorded in ice over centuries and demonstrates the environmental impact of human activity thousands of years ago. Marie Curie Incoming Fellowship - Paleofire Dr Natalie Kehrwald "The Marie Curie fellowship allowed me to incorporate new analytical techniques into my research. My working experience in Europe prepared me to better address my research challenges."
Marie Curie Actions Dr Gary Stutte "I am proud that my Marie Curie fellowship contributed to advancing the research partnerships between continents; which could bring significant benefits for the global community" A scientist with NASA in Florida visiting Limerick Institute of Technology (Ireland) with a Marie Curie Incoming Fellowship: CELLS Studying the development, physiology and molecular biology of plants growing in greenhouse environments and the process by which naturally occurring bacteria fertilise plants. His project will be tested by astronauts on the Florida International Space Station (ISS) in December 2013, possibly leading to a reduced use of synthetic fertilisers.
