Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions
Internationally respected in industry and academia, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship is a recognised mark of research excellence.
The Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), named after the double Nobel Prize winning Polish-French scientist, famed for her work on radioactivity and aim to support researchers at all stages of their careers, irrespective of nationality.
Researchers at Risk
Researchers at risk are those who have been displaced by conflict, or whose situation makes it difficult to pursue their research careers. ELITE-S will support these candidates from application stage.
