Marie Curie Actions: Record Number of Applications for EU Research Grants

Oct 7, 2010

Nearly 5,000 researchers have applied for EU-funded Marie Curie fellowship grants this year, an increase of 20 percent from last year and an increase of 70 percent from 2008.

Around 800 fellowships, worth a total of €150 million, will be granted to researchers working on projects for up to three years in a country other than their native one.  For the first time, a funding category is available for researchers who want to restart their career after a break.


BILAT-USA (Grant Agreement no: 244434) and Link2US (Grant Agreement no: 244371) Projects are co-funded by the European Union’s Capacities Programme on International Cooperation under the 7th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Cooperation.
