Why choosing Verona

Give a boost to your career with a Marie Curie in Verona

Choose the University of Verona as host institution for your Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship, funded by the European Union. You can carry on your investigations in any discipline and improve your career perspectives.

What is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship?

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships ― funded under Horizon 2020 Programme – are the main tool from European Union to support the transnational mobility and career development of the most talented researchers.
Some actions are dedicated to the reintegration of researchers after a long period of work outside Europe (Reintegration panel) or to restarting their research activity after a career break (Career Restart panel).
All research topics can be funded: from physics to linguistics, from life sciences to mathematics. The grant covers the remuneration costs for the researches (with an allowance for researchers with family), and the costs for training, research and networking.

Who can participate?

All researchers with a PhD degree or at least four years of experience in research can participate.

Two types of fellowships to come to Verona

European Fellowships: They are open to researchers of any nationality, and any country, who decide to come to the University of Verona for a period of 12-24 months. 

If a researcher wants to come to the University of Verona, she/he should not have spent in Italy more than 12 months in the last three years.

Global Fellowships: They are open to researchers of European nationality of long-term resident in Europe. The fellowship foresees a period of 12-24 months in an extra-European institution and a period of 12 months back to the University of Verona. In this case, the researcher should not have spent in the extra-European country more than 12 months in the last three years.
