Research Opportunities in Europe - Information session on grants and fellowships

Europe has a vibrant and exiting science and technology culture and offers many excellent and generous career funding opportunities for researchers and innovators, no matter where they come from in the world. Horizon 2020, the European Union's research and innovation funding program, is the world's largest multinational R&I program. In addition to funding collaborative research projects, it offers opportunities to individual researchers. Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions and European Research Council grants are open to researchers from public and private organizations, who would like to spend time in Europe, regardless of their nationalities, careers stage, or field of research. Experts will present these opportunities and guide the audience through the options and practicalities of application.
