Excellent Europe – Supporting Research Careers in Academia and Industry

08. bis 12. März 2021

This week covers four Horizon Europe programmes: Research Infrastructures, COST, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and the European Research Council. Although they appear quite diverse at first sight, there are two elements all four have in common: they are bottom up and they aim to support excellent research and research careers in Europe. During the week, we present outlines, novelties and benefits for each programme, take a closer look at the latest ERC developments from an inside perspective and will finally look at the topic of research careers in academia and industry in theory and in practice.

The week also offers many opportunities for participants to engage in discussions, discover (or rediscover) certain programme features to network. It will be of interest for a very wide range of potential applicants – from young researchers to very experienced principal investigators  and core facility managers – from universities and other research organisations to companies and other non-academic players.

(All sessions are conducted in English.)
