Competition Open: European Commission Grants for International Researchers
February 15, 2012 – The European Commission has launched the Marie Curie grants funded by the Commission’s Research & Innovation branch. Currently, there are two grants available for Canadian researchers and institutions wishing to conduct research in partnership or work in the European Union (EU):
- The Marie Curie Action: Career Integration Grants (CIG) is designed to support researchers in their first steps of their European research career with research budget funding to encourage them to establish themselves in an EU Member State or an associated country. The grants are provided for research projects elaborated by the host organisation in partnership with the researcher. There are two deadlines for the Marie Curie CIG: March 6 and September 18, 2012.
- The Marie Curie: IAPP Industry – Academia Partnerships and Pathways is designed to support cooperation between one or more research organisations, such as universities, colleges or research centers, and one or more commercial enterprises. There must be at least one from each of the two sectors and from two different European Union Member States or associated countries. Above this minimum, the participation of third countries and international organisations is possible.
