Luxinnovation Event: Researcher mobility in Europe and Beyond, Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowships how-to

Date: 08/07/2014
Place: Luxembourg, Chamber of Commerce, Kirchberg

The Marie Curie Research Fellowship Programme has already provided funding to over 80 000 researchers. The programme, renewed for 2014-2020, supports researchers’ mobility and career development and is open to all research fields, to both private and public organisations, to all career levels, and to any nationality.

Luxembourg already is a favoured destination for mobile researchers, and should continue to be a hub for excellent research, attracting - and retaining - talent.European programmes such as Marie Sklodowska-Curie are a privileged tool to achieve this. This event will distil the ingredients of a successful participation.


A senior keynote and a panel of Marie Curie Alumni will share their experience and help the audience go beyond generic information.
