Marie Curie Actions
My current research project (NetUrbIn) is funded by a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement n°PIOF-GA-2012-326640.
More specifically, International Outgoing Fellowships for Career Development (IOF) are international fellowships for experienced European scientists to gain new skills and expertise while conducting high-level research in a country outside Europe. They consist of an outgoing phase (in my case, 24 months at the University of Toronto) and a return phase (in my case, 12 months at the Université Catholique de Louvain).
IOF fellowships allow their recipient to develop and acquire:
- Training-through-research under supervision, through an individual personalized project
- Hands-on training to develop your scientific skills (new techniques or instruments, etc.) and your complementary skills (proposal preparation to request funding, patent applications, project management, tasks coordination, technical staff supervision, etc.)
- Inter-sectoral or interdisciplinary knowledge transfer
- Building Collaborations
- Active scientific and financial management of your research project
- Developing organizational skills through organization of training or dissemination events
