This is a great opportunity for students (upper level undergraduate, graduate and professional), postdocs, and faculty to learn about funding opportunities for research abroad.
The main objectives of the event are:
- Raising awareness on mobility and career opportunities in Europe, with a special focus on Marie Curie (MC) and European Research Council (ERC) funding schemes.
- Stimulating scientific cooperation between the United States and Europe
- Helping to network researchers from both continents with a view to expand the EURAXESS Links North America Community*
EURAXESS is the main organizer of this cross-disciplinary event targeting researchers at all stages of their career. The audience will be provided with information on funding and collaboration opportunities with Europe. To better underline the EU mobility and research funding opportunities, testimonials from fellows who have already successfully obtained a MC or an ERC fellowship or grant will be presented.
*EURAXESS Links is a networking tool for European researchers working outside Europe and non-European ones wishing to pursue a research career in Europe. It provides information about research in Europe, European research policy, and opportunities for research funding, for international collaboration and for trans-national mobility.
