Event description

Description

The Marie Curie Alumni Association in partnership with the Research Promotion Office at the University of Fribourg and the Commission for Technology and Innovation CTI of the Swiss Confederation would like to invite you to their upcoming event "Research Funding Opportunities in Switzerland", which will be held at the University of Fribourg on 4 October 2017 from 10:00 h until 17:30 h.

The aim of the event is twofold:

  1. To present a comprehensive overview of the public Swiss research funding landscape available to researchers from the MCAA or the University of Fribourg. Representatives from the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) and Euresearch will present the national, innovation and international funding opportunities available to researchers in Switzerland (see program below).
  2. The event will also be an opportunity for Swiss researchers to network with other Marie Curie Fellows, UNIFR researchers and UNIFR Faculty Members. Attendees will be able to choose if they would like to meet Faculty members in the morning before the event. There will also be other networking opportunities during the event (lunch, coffee break and networking apéro - check the program below).

Places are limited to 25 for the MCAA members and 25 for UNIFR affiliated members. A waiting list will be put in place and people will be informed if a place becomes available before the event.

This page is for MCAA members only. If you are a UNIFR member, please enrol here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/research-funding-opportunities-in-switzerland-unifr-tickets-37416319218.

The MCAA will allocate micro-grants to its members to cover the transportation cost to the venue. Please bear in mind that the train tickets must be kept safe and a copy sent to the organisers in order for the reimbursements to be made. Please choose the cheapest fare possible and consider supersaver tickets.
